A volunteer at an animal shelter will always have the inherent risk of injury - from cat scratches to animal bites. You agree to take on that risk, follow the directives of the shelter staff and take every precaution as directed. You will also hold the shelter, shelter staff, board of directors and anyone else connected to the organization harmless of liability.
Dog Volunteer - Spend a few hours playing with the dogs. Our pups love to go for walks or play a game of fetch, or just sit in the yard giving the pup a belly rub. Human companionship and love are all our pups want. If you volunteer in the morning we always need help to feed and clean the kennel enclosures.
Cat Volunteer - Our cats crave attention also. We always need help to scoop litter boxes, sweep and mop the cat rooms, as well as socializing kittens. How about spending a few hours playing with kittens?
Administrative - We always need help answering the phones, responding to emails and updating our shelter manager database (we will show you how to do this - it is quite simple) and writing thank you notes.
Fundraising/Event - Do you only have a hour or two available once in while? We always need help at adoption or fundraising events. Add your name to the contact list and we will let you know when we need help to see if you are available.
Animal Intern - Perfect for students in a veterinary program. You will be responsible for monitoring sick animals in our ICU, giving medications (under direction of shelter staff) as needed and adding the information into our shelter manager program. You will learn what signs to look for to determine if an animal is becoming ill, what shelter stress does to an animal, and ways to help alleviate it.
