Many dedicated individuals help Friends of Strays' homeless animals by socializing cats and dogs, counseling adopters, and performing numerous other tasks at our center. We offer a monthly volunteer open house and training sessions for both new and seasoned volunteers. Sessions fill up fast so please register to attend an open house by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you registered and if you cannot make it for any reason please call us so we can open up your spot to someone on our waiting list.
Thank you so much for sharing your love for shelter dogs & cats and for your desire to become a volunteer with us!
- Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Please see our youth and group services projects link below if you are under 16 and wish to support us.
- We require that all our volunteers commit to 8 hours a month. This helps us provide the animals in our shelter with a secure environment featuring continuity and consistency in terms of the people they interact with and the care they receive. It also allows volunteers to get to know not only each other but also our staff, creating an organization-wide “team” of people committed to a cause.
- We only accept court appointed community service hours for minor infractions. We do not accept any felony convictions or infractions involving theft. It is at the discretion of Friends of Strays to accept or deny someone who is asking to volunteer to earn community service hours.
