Volunteer at the Animal Shelter
We have a full time staff at the shelter but nothing pleases them more than to see the animals getting extra attention. Help with socialization, dog walking, training, laundry, bathing or cleaning of the kennels. We also have a garden to maintain and other administrative duties for those that want to assist in other ways.
Pet Photographers - Have a digital camera? Like to take photos of animals? Then join the photo team and commit to at least one day a week to take digital pictures of pets. A picture is worth a thousand words and this case those words are "Adopt me!"
Cat Cuddlers - Cat Cuddlers are responsible for nurturing, socializing and giving attention and affection to cats and kittens during their stay at the Animal Center, making them more comfortable on the adoption floor.
Fido Fitness - Fido Fitness provide the dogs with their daily exercise. The Center has a yard that the walkers can use, or you can walk around the block. Tired dogs are content dogs; content, calm dogs are more adoptable.
Dog Cuddlers - Dog Cuddlers provide socialization and affection to animals to young to walk, or dogs and puppies that are shy or fearful. Dogs and puppies that are confident and happy to be with people are more adoptable.
Off-site Event Assistants - These volunteers travel to off-site events to raise awareness about the shelter by handing out literature, answering questions about the shelter, helping with setup and takedown, transporting animals from the shelter to site, and handling animals at the site.
Marketing - Enjoy the challenges of marketing? Our Animal Center is always looking for ways to promote our shelter so that more people come out and adopt. This team also works to promote spaying and neutering animals, and help raise funds.
Clean Team - Do you like doing laundry? Love to organize or tidy? Training needed to use our commercial dishwasher and washers/dryers.
Please call the Shelter at 475-5620 for more details and schedule an orientation! *Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian. Contact Corrie Smith, Events, Marketing & Volunteer Guru - OB SPCA
