Volunteers are the one of the most valuable aspects of our shelter. We would not be able to accomplish all the things we do without your help. In a way, volunteers become the backbone for the shelter. We are always looking for passionate and loving volunteers to support us. 

Our volunteer opportunities include:

  • Cat Caretaker: Help clean/sanitize the cat colony rooms (which includes washing floors, walls, windows, litter boxes, and dishes), and socializing with the cats and kittens once the cleaning is done. 

  • Dog Caretaker: (18+) Help clean/sanitize the kennel (which includes cleaning walls, floors, kennels, dishes, and laundry), and also take a dog for a hike or to the park. 

  • Off-Site Events: Help the team by assisting with the dog & cat adoption events or information booth events to bring our shelter to the community.

  • Transporter: Be available to transport dogs & cats to and from the vet (located on Lee Hwy).

  • Fundraising/Special Projects: Help the team with our fundraising events or just helps us by running your own fundraising event on behalf of Pet Placement Center.

Age Restrictions:

  • Volunteers age 10-14 must have a parent or guardian accompanying them at all time. Activities are restricted to cat areas and landscaping. 

  • Volunteers age 15-17 do not need parental or guardian supervision, but activities will not include direct interaction with dogs.  

All volunteers are required to attend an orientation following the questionnaire and release form process.
