Volunteers ages 16 and above are always needed to socialize our pets. All volunteers are required to attend the Basic Pet Socialization class prior to working with our animals. If you're interested in registering for the class, please click on "orientation" on the left-side menu for instructions and a list of upcoming orientation dates.
There are a variety of other activities volunteers can assist with as well, some of which are listed on the menu to the left below the "volunteer" button. If you have a talent you would like to share that doesn't appear on the list, please feel free to let us know!
College Students - due to the overwhelming number of requests we recieve to grant interviews to meet class requirements, we have instituted a new policy. Interviews are granted by the appropriate staff person as time permits, and preference is given to shelter volunteers. Please complete the Request for Interview and Information form and either fax it to us at (540)432-9509 - attention: Candy Barnes, or bring it to the shelter. You will be contacted to schedule an appointment for the interviw. No interview questions will be answered by email.
