Once you have submitted an application and have been approved to join our volunteer program, we will schedule an Orientation/Tour with you. Our orientations are given in small groups and are led by our Volunteer Coordinator. After you have committed 15 hours or 30 days of time to us you will receive a volunteer t-shirt to wear while you volunteer, additional t-shirts may be purchased if desired.

  • All positions require a three-month commitment, serving a minimum of 4 hours each month. If you go inactive for three consecutive months within the first 6 months of volunteering you will be ineligible to return to the program for one year.
  • All Volunteers must have a valid email address. This will be used to communicate scheduling needs, updates and all other necessary information, as well as how you will sign up for volunteer shifts in our system.
  • Volunteers must be able to read and understand all policies and procedures, follow all shelter rules and complete all duties of their role independently. We may require that another individual comes to assist any volunteer who is unable to perform activities on their own.
