Our volunteer program is currently on hold.  

Update March 2022.  Our volunteer program is still on hold but we have begun discussing volunteer roles, training and scheduling.  Our COVID experiences have changed the way the shelter operates and it has changed our needs.   It may take a few months for us to determine our next steps.  We are accepting volunteer applications and keeping the applications on file
