Volunteer! Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul! And Fun!
Volunteers are the heart of the S.P.A. With the exception of a few paid employees who work hard and do a great job, the S.P.A.’s daily operations rely on help from volunteers.  Our dog advocate and cat advocates, all volunteers, oversee the well-being of our animals, not only so that the animals’ needs are met while they are at the S.P.A., but also to ensure that each one that is adopted finds a good, safe, and loving home and adjusts well to a new life away from the shelter.  Our board of directors, many of whom are at the S.P.A. on a daily basis, is composed entirely of volunteers.
Sign up to volunteer - you'll be happy you did! Please contact the S.P.A. via email at if you are interested in volunteering. We will then set up an interview for you to sign a volunteer agreement and to coordinate when to spend some quality time with our cats or dogs.  
Volunteer hours are Monday-Saturday from 11-2 for dogs.  During that time, come and walk dogs with us.  It’s great exercise for you and our dogs and also helps to socialize our dogs which, in turn, makes them more adoptable.  Our goal is to make sure all of our adolescent and older dogs get a daily walk.  We could use your help! It also is really good for them if you sit with them in their casitas. It is a wonderful, bonding experience for the volunteer and the dog and really helps ease any stress or tension the dog might feel from being in a shelter environment.
Volunteer hours are Monday-Saturday from 11:30-2 for cats.  During that time, spend some time socializing our cats. Sit and play with them. They will purr with happiness from the attention they receive and they’re adorably playful.
