Our volunteers are the best and we can't do it without them! We can never have too many volunteers and we welcome any level of commitment.  If you want to walk the big dogs, or play with cats, great! But if you can only spare 1/2 hour a week and work from home, that's ok with us, too! We have so many different areas where we could use extra help. Here are some of our ongoing volunteer needs:

  • Adoption counseling (helping potential adopters find the right fit for their home and lifestyle)

  • Adoption events (dog handling, signing up members and volunteers, talking about the SPCA) 

  • Care & socialization of shelter animals

  • Positive dog training (helping dogs with leash walking & basic manners)

  • Fundraising 

  • Animal Transport (to in-state and out-of-state rescues, events, foster homes, vet appointments)

  • IT help (web, computer maintenance)

  • Graphic Design 

  • Social media (Facebook & Instagram)

  • Answering phones

  • Laundry, dishes & cleaning

  • Preparing enrichment toys and activities to keep animals busy

  • Responding to and sending emails

  • Running local errands 

All volunteers must be 16 or accompanied by someone 21+

  • Shelter volunteers: email contact information, availability and areas of interest to: shelter61@yahoo.com
