Ways to Help Pet Welfare

Volunteer Dog


We are an all-volunteer workforce. Pet Welfare has no paid staff. Everyone from the Chairman of the Board to the shift volunteers donate their time and energy to provide a safe, clean, and loving home environment for the animals in our care until the perfect person comes along to make each cat or dog a permanent member of their family.

Dog Shift Volunteers
Volunteers come in every day of the week, including holidays, to make sure the dogs are fed, walked, socialized, and clean any areas that the dogs sleep in or spend the day. We have a morning shift (typically starts about 7:00am) that lets all the dogs out in the morning and an evening shift (typically starts about 4:00pm) that puts them back to bed. The shifts will typically last about 2 hours depending on the number of volunteers on the shift and the amount of dogs at the kennel

Cat Shift Volunteers
Volunteers come in every day of the week, including holidays, to make sure the cats are fed, socialized, and clean all litter boxes. We have a morning shift and an evening shift.

Office Volunteers
Volunteers come in Monday - Saturday, 9:00am - 1:00pm, excluding holidays to answer phones, show animals to prospective adopters, and perform office administrative duties.

Pick Me Dog


Adoptions allow us to help abandoned and unwanted cats and dogs find a loving home. With each adoption, a life is saved. Also with each adoption Pet Welfare, through the adoption fee, gets the much needed financial support to continue its lifesaving efforts.

Why get a pet from an animal shelter?

They are your best source when looking for a pet. We have a great selection of cats and dogs that are already spayed or neutered and up to date on all their shots.

At Pet Welfare we screen all animals that come to our shelter. We ensure every animal is evaluated for temperament. The volunteers give special to every "new" resident to the shelter to make them feel at home during their adjustment period. During the interview process the adopter will ask many questions to ensure that the pet you are thinking about adopting is the best match for you, your family, and situation. We take each and every adoption very seriously and look for that last forever home for our pets.

Come in and meet our community of cats and dogs. We're sure if you are ready to adopt that we have the right pet for you and your family.
