Become a Volunteer!


Volunteer opportunities are currently restricted to try to maintain a safe clinic environment. Once we are again able to accept new volunteers, we would love to have additional volunteers to help with laundry (we do a LOT of laundry), scrubbing instruments, upkeep for our landscaping and grounds and more! Please check back for more volunteer opportunities. 

Age Requirement: Due to liability restraints, volunteers must be at least 18 years old. We do have off-site youth volunteer opportunities that can be done from home like making dog beds and cat toys, organizing a donation drive to collect wish list items, and more. Download and view a list of youth volunteer ideas.

All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application and sign a liability agreement.

If you need to complete community service hours for school credit, please see our short-term community service hour project list.

If you are interested in any of the following volunteer opportunities or would like more information, please e-mail . We look forward to meeting you and to working together to reduce pet overpopulation in our community!
