Our focus is building long-term relationship with our volunteers. Our priority for acceptance into our program will be volunteers who are willing to make a minimum commitment of 6 hours a month for 6 months.
Volunteers are required to maintain an annual membership to help support our program and the overall mission of the organization. The membership fee is $25.00 a year and is not required until acceptance into the program is confirmed.
Our information and referral line is maintained by dedicated, trained volunteers. They provide information, referrals and advice on pet care, spaying and neutering, responsible pet ownership, how to find a home for a pet or a stray when shelters are full and more.
We would love to hear from you. Give us a call, drop us a line or stop in to see us. Our circle of compassion always has room to expand.
