Programa detallado

We expect our volunteers to have strong communication skills as you are our eyes and ears to to health and well-being of the animals. You need to be able to learn and adapt as the shelter is an ever changing place with both animals and people coming and going. It can be chaotic, rewarding, stressful, fun, and an emotional place.
All volunteers need to come in with the understanding that this is a shelter and as such we have young and old, healthy and ill, friendly and unfriendly animals. We have even done hospice care for animals that would have died on the street. There are many animals so animal illness is not unheard of and we do our best to keep everyone happy healthy and safe, human and feline and canine. We are only as clean and as strong as our weakest volunteer, that includes Admin as well.


Actividades & Turnos

We have 3 shifts.
AM 9-2. This shift focuses on basic animal care such as walking the dogs, feeding all animals, giving meds, scooping/washing litter boxes and more of the same.
PM 4-9. This shift focuses more on cleaning of the animal rooms and their things (bowls, litter boxes, bed sheets. There is still some basic animal care that needs doing.
Mid 2-4. This shift is more of a house sitting shift. You recieve any packagaes that come in (could be for the animals or the humans of the house), make sure everyone is ok but mostly do your own thing without leaving the house/yard.
