We welcome volunteers to come walk the dogs and socialize with them anytime we are open to the public, which is Tuesday – Saturday 11 AM – 3 PM. We also need volunteers to help us keep the play areas at the shelter clean by using one of our nifty pooper-scoopers. Like to help in other ways? We can always use the following items: Purina Dog Chow, Laundry Detergent, Scoopable Clay Litter, Purina Cat Chow, Small & Medium Sized Milk-Bones, Pupperoni treats, Slip-Leads for Medium-Large dogs.
