Volunteer Opportunities

We could not provide such outstanding care for our animals without the help of our dedicated volunteers. Anderson volunteers are involved in nearly every aspect of what we do, providing hands-on care to animals as well as helping to keep the facility clean, participating in events and fundraisers, assisting with administrative functions and even fostering animals in their own homes.

Our extensive volunteer program enables individuals or groups to become involved in helping the shelter according to their own personal interests and talents. The volunteer program is for adults (ages 16+) and offers individuals the opportunity to work on behalf of the shelter’s animals to make a positive impact in our community. If you have a child under the age of 16 who wants to get involved, please visit our Humane Education page to find a variety of programs for younger children.

Please note: We no longer host court-ordered community service volunteers.
