Volunteer Opportunities

Caring people willing to dedicate a few hours a week or month will find that their skills and talents make a huge difference to animals in need.

Adult volunteers of all ages are welcome! Adult volunteers may be subject to a Washington State Background Check.

Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the Volunteer Orientation or their first interview. Youth 16-17 years of age, may be approved to volunteer on their own.

Youth under 16, and of school age, must volunteer with a parent or adult. The adult must also be an active volunteer and is expected to work alongside the youth while supervising. This can be a great family activity!

We are always recruiting for volunteers in the following areas:
  • Animal care at the Shelter
  • Cat care at Adoption Centers
  • Office help
  • Foster care
  • Business operations
  • Fundraising
  • Marketing
  • Events and More!
