Volunteering

A number of volunteer opportunities exist at the shelter. You can work on behalf of the animals directly through walking dogs, bathing animals, cuddling the cats, feeding treats, or training animals. If you can't work with the animals, you can help with clerical duties, assisting visitors, special events, or collecting donations. We always have special projects as well.


Volunteer Orientation & Training Session

Volunteers must successfully complete an orientation and training session before they are allowed to handle any of our animals. Our Volunteer Coordinator conducts several sessions each year. If you would like to volunteer, please email Patti or call her at 309-682-9015!
