Dog Trainer: You will teach us basic obedience. We love to get treats for doing what we are supposed to, but you may have to help us understand the treat system.

Dog Walkers: You will walk with us, play with us, or run with us. We hope that you donít wear out before we do.

Groomers: You will brush and bathe us. We love to feel clean.

Laundry & Cleaning Assistants: You will wash, dry, and fold our towels, blankets, and toys, wash our dirty dishes, and sweep our floors.

Office Help: You will answer our phone and assist our manager as she needs help. We love our manager and know that she needs help finding all of us homes.

Groundskeeper: You will tend to our grass, snow, flowers, and trees. We are love to play outside in snow or grass, so we would love to have you keep it looking nice for us.

Fundraisers: You will help our committee fundraise or obtain grants to keep our lights on and food in our bellies.

Ad Sponsors: You will donate money to keep our weekly newspaper ad going, so we can find our new families. The weekly ad costs us $40.

Our mission is to help abandon or unwanted dogs and cats to find good loving homes. We encourage our community to spay/neuter their animals to help control the pet population. Our shelter runs on volunteers and donations from individuals, businesses, grants, and corporations. We believe that every domestic animal deserves a happy and healthy life in a good home.



All Volunteers are Purr-fect & GREATLY Appreciated!
