Animal Services
As an animal services volunteer you will play a very important role in the
process of finding our adoptable animals their forever homes. Once you have
completed your orientation, you will be able to help in the following areas:

Kennel Care
Think you have what it takes to get the shelter spotless by 10am? Help our
kennel staff clean and prep our shelter for adoption hours.

. Cleaning kennels and outdoor runs
. Ensuring disease control
. Replenishing bedding
. Maintaining laundry of all bedding and kennel needs
. Sanitizing water and food bowls
. Replenishing water in kennels

waiting to find forever homes. This not only helps keep them happy and
healthy, but also improves their manners for their new family.

. Brushing
. Playtime
. Using enrichment tools (ex. stuffing kongs)
. Teaching basic commands and manners
. Conditioning our adoptable dogs on their kennel presence
