Fields marked with an * are required Thank you so much for considering to be a part of our volunteer program! Volunteers are an invaluable part of our life-saving efforts. Before filling out the application, we ask prospective volunteers to keep in mind the following: We want to build a progressive volunteer culture that works positively with our shelter staff and customer base to help animals and to increase our ability to save even more cats and dogs going forward. We ask volunteers be respectful, courteous and refrain from drama. Rules and protocols are put in place by management at our shelter with the following always in mind: our animals health, safety and well-being, the safety of staff, volunteers and customers, and additional restrictions that may be imposed by the physical, financial burden of the shelter itself. We ask volunteers follow and respect these rules and protocols at all times. Because of our insurance there is a minimum age requirement to volunteer at 21 years.
