Become a Volunteer!

Step #1: Attend a Volunteer Orientation for the shelter at which you’d like to volunteer. We offer three orientations per month on an ongoing basis. Space is limited, so please RSVP with the Volunteer Manager, Bethany Rocci at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Please also note that if you are under the age of 14 and would like to volunteer, you must do so with a parent or guardian. Your parent or guardian would be the individual who would also need to attend orientation and complete the application, which is step #2.

Step #2: Complete our application. After you attend orientation, the Volunteer Manager will send this link to you. Once it is submitted, you will receive a notification about your open volunteer account and you can begin signing up for shifts!
