Animal shelters often depend on volunteers for general animal care such as feeding, grooming, walking, and training. With many tasks and responsibilities to manage, keeping volunteers organized and informed can be challenging and time-consuming.
Volgistics is a fully online platform that makes animal shelter volunteer management easier and scales to the needs and size of your organization. Featuring a user-friendly interface that helps you track and communicate with volunteers, Volgistics also allows volunteer managers to customize the platform and keep workers engaged at every level.
Volunteer leaders can use Volgistics to simplify managing their animal shelter volunteers. You can build volunteer profiles and save details such as age, location, emergency contacts, references, and employers, and create custom fields, such as their service preferences and animals they're responsible for.

VicTouch uses an optional, on-site kiosk where you can let volunteers sign in and out for their shifts. The module greets volunteers when they arrive at your shelter and automatically logs working time, eliminating the need for you to manually input hours. We recommend using a dedicated touchscreen computer or iPad for the volunteer kiosk.
VicNet is an online volunteer portal where volunteers can view and manage their own info and schedules. VicNet is accessible through any internet-connected device at home or work, and each shelter volunteer receives a Volgistics profile for access.
Volunteers can set their schedules and alert you if they can't make it. Plus, messages you share on VicNet are also displayed to volunteers using the VicTouch kiosk, keeping them up to date on deliveries and events, or giving them a thank-you for all their hard work.
Recruit volunteers and fill openings more easily with Volgistics. For a simpler application process, you can create and post custom forms on your website without relying on a website designer or IT personnel. Applications automatically generate volunteer profiles from the details supplied. With less back-office processing to do, volunteers can get started faster, and your shelter can focus more on quality animal care.
Volunteers who are completing service requirements can have their hours and progression tracked in Volgistics. Managers or leaders can set custom assignments and quotas to individual volunteers. The platform allows both you and your volunteers to review service hours with in-depth reporting features, which is especially helpful if high school and college students volunteer at your animal shelter.
Volgistics is a convenient and flexible volunteer management software for humane societies and animal shelters. If you have existing volunteer data, Volgistics can convert the old database to our platform for you. We also offer an extensive help library, video tutorials, and a dedicated support team is available to help you smoothly integrate Volgistics into your organization.
