______Community Outreach


As a volunteer, you can make a difference in the lives of animals. In just  two hours per

week you can not only lend a hand to the shelter staff, but also help spread the message

of responsible pet ownership & care in your community.

You’ll  never find a more grateful and loving being  than the animal you are comforting.

The animals will bring a little sunshine to even the most dismal days and you will experience

joy on the day our animals find their forever homes.

You will make friends while working with others toward the common goals of  health, safety,

and  emotional well-being for our animals.
