Applicants who meet the volunteer requirements are invited to a Volunteer Orientation to learn more about us and the opportunities we offer, as well as participate in a tour of our animal center. After orientation, volunteers will receive special hands-on training.

Volunteer Orientation Meetings will be held here at our animal center. Be sure to call soon to reserve your spot.

  • We have very limited seating (please do not bring children or others with you to the meeting).
  • Be prepared to stay the entire time; it lasts 2 hours and 30 minutes. Sorry, but we don't allow any food or snacks during the presentation.

All of our volunteer orientation classes are filled for the rest of the year. Please contact us in mid January for the upcoming 2019 volunteer classes. 



Hope to see you soon.
