Dog Walkers

Exercise is crucial for shelter animals. If you are interested in becoming a dog-walker at the shelter please stop in Tuesday-Saturday from 11am-3pm and fill out a volunteer application.

Requirements to become a dog walker are:

Now that the shelter has established it’s Spay & Neuter Program prior to ownership, all animals that are age appropriate & intact must be transported to Dr. S.

It is the responsibility of the shelter to have the animal(s) delivered pre-surgery,and the new owner will pick up the animal post-surgery.

A Volunteer for this service should have:

It is inevitable that our shelter will receive elderly, ill, lame or pregnant animals & from season to season experience the need to de-populate due to the spread of contagious disease.

  • Visit the shelter & fill out a Foster Application.
  • Expect a in home visit conducted by Shelter Manager or Animal Control.
  • To provide adequate shelter & fresh food & water daily.

  • Know that the animal with special needs in your care may or may not be short-term.
