CAAWS is run solely by unpaid volunteers and is governed by a Board of Directors. If you interact well with animals and people and a re free 1-3 Saturdays a month, then this is the volunteer position for you. Finding our animals good homes is one of the most important things any shelter does. As a Dog Adoption Day Volunteer you would help us do just that. Adoption days are every Saturday from 10:30am to 3:30pm. We ask for you to volunteer at least one Saturday a month. We hold adoptions at our shelter on Quinn Dr. We need help greeting the public, making sure the dogs and puppies are rotated outside , answering questions (after training), and counseling adoptions (after advanced training.) This opportunity is acceptable for community service hours.
