Volunteer Timing/Scheduling:

Volunteers create their own schedules. You can come as often as you'd like, whether that be daily, weekly, or monthly. Shifts are scheduled between 9am-5pm 7 days a week, but we are closed for all stat holidays. Shifts are scheduled for 2 hour increments, but shifts are flexible and you can leave early or stay longer as needed.

We greatly value the enthusiasm of all volunteers who wish to contribute to our cause. However, it's important to note that our volunteer opportunities encompass a variety of responsibilities, including cleaning tasks. While working with animals is certainly a part of our program, we also rely on volunteers to assist with maintaining our facilities. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to support our organization in its entirety.
