Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
We are dedicated to making the lives of the animals in our care as comfortable and as healthy as possible until they are adopted. If they are not adopted, then they will live out their lives at LP.
Lone Pine is run solely by volunteers. The Director doesn't even get paid and has to work a full-time job to pay her bills. Occassionally, we are able to hire someone for a few hours to help the director take care of the animals.
We are only open one (1) day a week because all of our volunteers work full-time at other jobs. Our survival, as well as that of the animals in our care, hinges on both the monetary and in-kind donations that we receive, money from any adoptions we may have, and the many fund raisers we participate in. While money is important, the true life blood of the Shelter is our volunteers. We would have to close without their help.
Lone Pine is not your typical brick and concrete building. The facility sits on a farm. The Director and her husband live there. The majority of our dogs are housed in outside kennels, usually 10'x10', that are covered. Each dog has a dog house. The small dogs as well as some older dogs are housed in a heated/cooled trailer and in a room. The cats are in a converted milk barn that There is an enclosed patio area which the cats enjoy on nice days.
The Shelter is currently home to 67 dogs ranging in age from 4 months to 16 years, many of whom have been at the shelter since they were puppies. There are 43 cats ranging in age from 1 1/2 years to 16 years. Many of the cats were born at the shelter.
Our goal is to be a NO KILL SHELTER. This is possible only if we are able to continue receiving donations, having animals get adopted, and most importantly...keep the volunteers we have and get MORE volunteers to help in the care of the animals. We currently have 2 - 3 "old timers," as we call them, who put in several hours a month and whom we rely on. There are others who help occasionally.
