To keep our shelter running smoothly it takes an entire family of motivated and dedicated volunteers. We have a morning and evening shift every day of the week, 365 days a year, for the dogs and for the cats. We have an office shift from 9:00am - 1:00pm, Monday - Saturday and additional staff available during the Saturday office shift to help with adoptions. The office is closed on Sunday and all federal holidays.

Office Staff

Monday - Saturday the volunteer assists customers with viewing the pets, applying for adoptions, and volunteering. The volunteer answers the phone, takes messages, files, copies records, and creates adoption folders. Office staff also clean the office area and assist with the laundry.

Both morning and evening shifts the volunteers take each dog for a walk to provide a good stretch, fresh air, and exercise. The volunteers also groom, administer medication, feed, clean kennels, train, and socialize with the dogs.
