Volunteering is fun and is also very rewarding. Volunteer to walk dogs, play with the cats, or attend local adoption events. Volunteers help the shelter animals get adopted. Human contact can help relieve the stress of being in a shelter and the more contact animals have the more likely they'll be adopted. Please stop by for one of the shelter’s volunteer orientations on the first Wednesday of every month from 5:30-6:30pm, or the third Saturday at 9 a.m., at 298 Plant Road (see map). To become a volunteer, you will need to attend the one-hour introductory orientation, and then come back for a one-on-one session with a shelter volunteer or staff to get ‘hands-on’ experience. If you are younger than 18 years of age, please be sure to bring your parent or legal guardian with you. For more information email Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 707-467-6453.
