Volunteer Staff Opportunities 

Our Volunteer Staff program seeks individuals interested in a long-term commitment to volunteering.  We offer many different volunteer opportunities. (The volunteer program is not available to satisfy court ordered community service.)  

If you are interested in becoming a part of the Volunteer Staff and you are able to meet the program requirements below, please contact Volunteer Services email: or 239-533-9202


  • High school diploma or GED and pass a criminal background screening. 
  • Ability to make a long-term commitment to volunteering (at least 6 months) and a minimum of 16 hours per month during shelter hours.  For those who can only volunteer on Saturdays, a minimum of two Saturdays per month is required.  The kennels are open Monday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm.
  • Be able to commit to a regular schedule as well as the 16 hour per month minimum.
