Student Volunteer Program for Community Service Hours:  We currently offer on-site (at the shelter) volunteer opportunities for students ages 16 and up.  For those under age 16, at-home opportunities are available, including easy crafting projects and organizing donation drives to collect needed items (such as newspapers, towels, etc.).   

With parental consent, students may also sign up to become foster caregivers, earning up to 4 hours of community service credit per day for temporarily caring for an animal in your home.  For more information on any of these opportunities, please email us at
