There are also many dogs at the shelter. They get a bit more freedom than the cats, but still could benefit from the attention of the volunteers. The dogs need someone to walk them, play Frisbee or ball with them, bathe them, groom them, pet them, and love them. They often need some training such as "sit" or simply walking on a leash. Taking our shelter dogs for a walk is a wonderful way to volunteer your time and give back. It helps our higher energy dogs to get more exercise and helps the shyer dogs to gain more confidence. Additionally, you can take one of the dogs into one of the yards and teach them tricks, play ball, or just generally hang out with them. As winter approaches, we need volunteers to come to the shelter and just hang out with animals indoors as well.

Come join our volunteer team and make a difference! No specific age requirements though volunteers under 16 must volunteer with a parent or guardian. Interested persons should submit a volunteer application via our website Thank you!
