"No man can be condemned for owning a dog. As long as he has a dog, he has a friend; and the poorer he gets, the better friend he has." ~Will Rogers

 

Our volunteer program is vital to all of our work.
Volunteers are our most valuable asset. 

Without volunteers we could not do the rescue work
that we do. 

Your contribution of time and talent can help save the lives
of unwanted, stray or abused animals that cannot help themselves. 

We have many volunteer opportunities to suit many different skills and interests.

The animals need you!They need volunteers who can donate time at various tasks that help them find permanent, loving homes.  It is VERY IMPORTANT that as a volunteer you realize that your piece, no matter how small or insignificant you feel it is, is critical to our rescue work. Our animals rely on us, we are their voice. We ask that once you have agreed to an assignment, that you fulfill your commitment.

You must be reliable/dependable, have good people skills, be flexible and have an understanding of the mission and goals of our organization. You must also realize that we are a diverse group of people; all sharing a common interest, and be tolerant of the individuality of each of your fellow volunteers.

To submit an application to join our volunteer force, please complete the form below. 
Please note that volunteers must be 18 years or older to apply.
