Many dedicated individuals help Friends of Strays' homeless pets by representing our organization at special events & fundraisers, socializing cats & dogs, counseling adopters, and performing many other valuable tasks at our shelter. We offer a monthly volunteer open house and training sessions for both new and seasoned volunteers. Sessions fill up fast so please register to attend an open house by emailing us at [email protected] If you registered and if you cannot make it for any reason please call us so we can open up your spot to someone on our waiting list.

Thank you so much for sharing your love for shelter dogs & cats and for your desire to become a volunteer with us!
  • Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Please see our youth and group services projects link below if you are under 16 and wish to support us.
  • We require that all our volunteers commit to 8 hours a month. This helps us provide the animals in our shelter with a secure environment featuring continuity and consistency. It also allows volunteers to get to know not only each other, but also our staff, creating an organization-wide “team” of people committed to the Friends of Strays' mission.
  • We do not accept court appointed community service.

***ALL VOLUNTEER SPOTS ARE FILLED AT THIS TIME. The next volunteer open house will be in January, 2020. Check back soon for more information.***
