Animal Shelter

Shelter Manager Valerie Robinson



They NEED your HELP!! Our staff try their best to give the love and affection that each animal deserves, but because there are more animals than employees, this isn't always possible. That is where you can help! Giving a few hours of your time can make a tremendous difference in the lives of animals and the feeling you have from doing so is very rewarding!

We also have volunteer opportunities that can be done away from the shelter such as transporting animals, fostering animals, grant writing, errand running, fundraising, etc.

We have volunteer opportunities for individuals 16 years and older. We also have a youth volunteer program. A guardian must accompany youth volunteers to the shelter and/or off-site events.

Because we pair volunteers with trained staff for the most effective, safe, and enjoyable volunteer experience, walk-ins without an appointment are generally not accepted. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please sign up online by clicking HERE.
