Volunteer Opportunities

 

There are many areas available for volunteers and many ways to assist the shelter. Following is a partial list of opportunities. Please feel free to contact us for more information on any of the opportunities or programs listed here. We regret we are unable to accept youth volunteers unless they are 16 years old or enrolled in an agriscience program.

 

 

EDUCATORS

We are looking for a volunteer to visit local schools and Girl Scout troops to educate our young people on proper animal care and responsible pet ownership. No formal teaching experience is necessary - just a love of animals and a desire to help! Please contact us if you are interested in this opportunity.

 

DOG WALKERS

Fill a canine's days with love, social contact, and exercise by taking the dog out for a stroll.

 

CAT/DOG SOCIALIZERS

Create a loving, healthy environment for our animals as they play with, pet, brush, talk to and give attention to our pets until permanent homes are found. These types of volunteers are especially needed when we take in shy cats.

 

SHELTER HELPERS

Help is always appreciated (and needed) with daily chores at our shelter, including grooming, feeding, and cleaning. This is a great opportunity for youngsters to learn the responsibilities required to own and care for a pet!

 

SPECIAL PROJECTS

Fundraisers and special events require a large volunteer base utilizing many different talents. We always welcome assistance planning and running our events.

CONTRIBUTING YOUR SPECIAL SKILLS

We always welcome individuals and groups that can contribute of their talents. Below are some of the skills and "hands-on" assistance we generally are looking for and appreciate without bounds. We welcome your contribution of time and talent which make AWS a continued success. Don't be shy. Simply give us a call or send an email to let us know you are interested!
