Orientation Overview

Become a Volunteer!

Become a volunteer in a rewarding field helping animals from all backgrounds. Learn the skills and abilities to understand our four legged companions. The pets in our care need people like you to help give them additional attention, care, and exercise. 


Bring your expertise! There are plenty of things you can do for the shelter pets that are not hands-on animal care. Are you great at organization? What about planning parties and events? Do you love talking to new people and advocating for animals? We would love to meet you!
