The Community Service Program is designed for people who are required to complete a specific amount of volunteer hours.
Duties in this program are general shelter upkeep and assistance (laundry, dishes, floor and wall cleaning, outdoor projects, etc.)- all extremely important, high-demand jobs at the shelter. Please note: there is no direct animal care involved and our onboarding process takes about two weeks.
COMMUNITY SERVICE FOR STUDENTS
Volunteers in this category generally have a small amount of required community service hours for educational requirements. Students can volunteer independently if at least 16 years old (with parent/guardian approval). Students between the ages of 13 and 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Volunteers in this category have been court-ordered to perform community service. Interested applicants must be at least 18 years old, and the offense(s) must not pertain to theft, drugs, animal abuse, sexual offense, or violence. A copy of court documentation of offense(s) must be provided.
