Volunteers are ALWAYS Welcome!


Volunteers are the soul of every non-profit organization. 

We would be more than happy to have you at the shelter to help us create a

better life for our cats and dogs.



Volunteer Opportunities


Our shelter could not exist without the support of our volunteers who bring a diversity of interests, knowledge, expertise and caring to our organization.  We look forward to a long and productive relationship.



Donate a Day (or an hour or two) with the Dogs!

Even with all the activity in our shelter, dogs can get bored.  They need friends to talk with and to play ball, frisbee to take them for walks.

NOTE: For safety reasons, volunteers must be at least 18 years old or 13 and older accompanied by an adult.

Calling all Cat Connoisseurs!

Please visit and interact with our adoptable cats.  Many of our felines enjoy being held, spoken to and played with.


Share your Strengths at our Shelter!

Adopt-A-Dog Inc. relies 100% on private donations.  The organization strives to put those contributions to work rescuing cats and dogs in our local area and beyond. 

Times are tough!  Funds are harder and harder to find. Yet the demand to shelter unwanted pets continues to grow at an alarming rate.

There are overwhelming choices when it comes to sharing hard earned dollars, however there are not many organizations where you can take your money for a walk or listen to it purr.  Please consider contributing towards our cause and come watch it work!
