Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering with the Animal Adoption Center's "Partners for Paws" program offers citizens the opportunity to utilize current skills, develop new skills, meet their neighbors and give back to their community.

Working under the supervision of the Animal Services staff, volunteers provide valuable support and assistance. Volunteer opportunities may include working with cats and dogs, cleaning kennels and scooping litter, laundry and dishes, or assisting Animal Services staff on a special project.
