We are looking for volunteers to walk dogs, cat cuddle or to help with general housekeeping at the shelter. Volunteering at our shelter is very rewarding! Our animals love the attention, and the socialization provided by volunteers helps get them adopted more quickly. Dog walkers must be at least 18 years old and able to handle energetic dogs. If you have a few free hours each week, please give us a call at 814-443-2121.
