Shelter Volunteers

Our Shelter volunteers have been helping out at the facility since January of 2011. Since their beginning, our volunteers have put in well over 1,200 hours of volunteer service. They provide a great number of services including assisting in cleaning the shelter, walking the animals, brushing and cleaning the animals, and taking animals to special adoption centers with adoptable animals.

We are so grateful for their service to the city and to the animals in our care. Thank you for volunteering!
