Volunteering is an immeasurably rewarding experience, and one that is integral to the success of Animal Ark’s mission.
We want each volunteer to feel that he or she is a part of our team, each important to our overall success. The shelter could not exist without the support of volunteers who bring a diversity of interests, knowledge, expertise and caring to our organization.
The shelter relies on dedicated volunteers to provide:
- training and socialization for dogs
- socialization and grooming for cats
- adoption counseling & Meet N’ Greets
- post adoption follow-ups
- animal database entry
- fundraising and outreach
- recruitment of new volunteers
- and more…
Volunteers must be at least 13 years old. Volunteers ages 13-18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
***Current Pandemic restrictions require all volunteers to be over 18
