Time Commitment: We ask for a 3 month commitment of at least 8 hours a month.

Getting Started

Volunteers begin by attending a 1 hour group orientation, offered every other month. Register by clicking on one of the hyperlinks below. Due to lack of space, orientations are not held at the shelter. *Please note that this orientation is not for exam volunteers, court-ordered community service, short term projects, or school required hours.*

Space is limited, so please be patient. If you’re unable to attend the upcoming orientations, check back as the next dates will be posted after the orientations are held.
