There are many ways to help our shelter! Contact us if you are interested in volunteering your time.
AT THE SHELTER
Help from community members is essential to our day-to-day function. Whether it be cleaning cages, walking dogs, dishes, socialization, or helping with paperwork, our dogs and cats are grateful for every hour of help we receive.
If you wish to volunteer, please fill out our volunteer form online or at our shelter. Children under 15 years of age are not able to volunteer. Children 15-18 years of age can volunteer, but will not be able to work with animals directly for their own safety.
FUNDRAISING and EVENTS
We put on multiple fundraising and mobile events every year, and are in need of volunteers to help with set-up, organization, greeting, and tear-down. If you are interested in donating your time and skills to help us put on one of our events, please contact us directly.
Our shelter sometimes has pregnant or nursing dogs and cats, or animals too young for adoption, that need to be fostered for 6-10 weeks prior to being put up for adoption. This helps us ensure the safety of our nursing moms and young puppies and kittens. Our foster program helps us to adopt more animals and put more altered, healthy animals in the Cleveland Ohio area.
Please let us know if you are interested in fostering one of our animals. Food, bedding, and medical care is provided at no cost. We will gladly answer any questions you may have.
