Our animals need you! Your time is one of the most valuable gifts you can give. This is especially true when you choose to volunteer with animals in need, who treasure companionship above all else. The animals love to meet new people and to interact with you, it helps them develop into well socialized and adoptable pets.
Although we are government-funded and have a number of paid staff, we still rely heavily on volunteers to help run the daily operations of our center. For example, without our volunteers:
- There would be no educational program - Animals in our care would lack the much-needed extra attention and exercise they currently receive - The galleries of our adoptable animals would not be updated regularly with professional photos and spot on write-ups - Designs on our Facebook page, flyers and banners would not exist
