Volunteering

Love animals? You’ll love volunteering here!

WCHS volunteers are a very important part of our team. They help our staff provide loving care to our animals by performing a wide range of tasks — everything from helping feed and socialize our animals to helping staff our fundraising events. As a WCHS volunteer, you’ll make a real difference for our shelter pets – and what could be more fun than spending a few hours with wonderful critters?

Shelter volunteers are asked to commit to a set schedule of two hours per week for a minimum of six months. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old and able to work independently. Volunteers must be able to follow verbal and written instructions  without assistance.
