To our friends: Our goal is to review every application and contact new volunteers within one week of applying.  Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you at Almost Home!

WE ALWAYS NEED VOLUNTEERS!!  We’re always looking for 18-or over responsible, consistent, energetic, friendly and self-motivated individuals to help out. Our new shelter has created a significant need for help in the daily care of our homeless animals. We are in the process of scheduling shelter volunteer training sessions and are looking for people who can commit to various shifts of feeding, walking and socializing the animals. We want our animals to be smothered with love and attention by our volunteers until we can find them all a new mommy and/or daddy to take over. We also need shelter helpers who can assist with the daily domestic chores.

If working with the animals at the shelter isn’t your interest, we certainly have many other volunteer needs in the areas of transportation, adoption events, fundraising, helping our webmaster, fostering, marketing, photography, shoveling snow, helping with the grounds in summer, sending out our e-mails to your friends, and passing out flyers in your area. There are so many, many ways you can help! Just let us know what you’re interested in doing – every little thing helps!  Come volunteer with us, find your niche and experience the job of helping homeless animals find loving homes!
