Youth Volunteerism


Volunteer requirements:

  • 18 yrs of age (unless fostering)
  • Reliable transportation
  • 3 month minimum commitment of one weekday shift onsite; and/ or 1 off site weekend event a month

At this time the only volunteer positions on site and at events are for those 18 years of age or greater. We do not have a Youth or Teen Coordinator and cannot accommodate minors on site otherwise.

For youth that really want to handle animals, we suggest fostering, which is the most fun and rewarding volunteering anyway! By taking an animal into your home you can change so much for a dog or cat, by changing so little yourself. Kids love fostering and it’s a really empowering experience to give a young person- showing them how they can impact the world and have fun doing it!
