Do you have extra time on your hands or are you just recently retired? Why not donate your time to helping our four-legged friends at the shelter?!

We rely heavily on our volunteers for a variety of things to keep our animals happy and healthy during their stay with us, as well as to spread our mission. If you are interested in helping our four-legged friends in some way, review our available volunteer positions and then complete our volunteer application. Do keep in mind, that all volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian while volunteering at the shelter. Age to volunteer is determined by position. For our younger volunteers, please check out our Shelter Buddies Program!

Once approved, we ask you to purchase a volunteer tee shirt for $10.00 and attend an orientation specific to your chosen volunteer position(s) before being permitted to start. During this time, we will give you a tour of the facility, go over the do’s and don’ts of volunteering, review safety guidelines, and answer any questions that you may have.

We consider volunteering an ongoing commitment between the volunteer and AHS. Because of this, we require a minimum of 4 volunteer hours a month.

If you are already an approved volunteer but have not been at the shelter within the past 6 months, you will be required to attend orientation again before being permitted to volunteer.

We look forward to working with you!
