Dog and catAbout
A great way to serve your community and the animals we love is for you to volunteer at our animal control facility or become a foster care family!

Volunteers may be involved in walking our adoptable dogs, answering phones at the shelter, assisting with off-site adoption events, contacting rescue groups, etc. Your community service can make an impact and a difference in the lives of animals.

You may also apply to become a foster-care family for animals housed at our shelter. You may download a foster care application here.

We also plan for our volunteers to be involved with:
  • Offsite Adoptions: assist with unloading animals, setting up crates, walking animals, and displaying animals for adoption
  • Public Outreach: assist at schools and other events/locations educating the public on responsible pet ownership.
  • Shelter Care / Adoptions: provide loving care for animals housed in the shelter by socializing shy animals, walking dogs, cleaning cages and toys, etc.

Individuals interested in becoming a volunteer at the shelter should complete the application below. All volunteers are required to be at least 18 years of age or older and able to pass a background check.
