The Animal Welfare Society can only do the work we do for animals with the help of
volunteers who donate their time, expertise and love every single day of the year.
Whether it's walking dogs or nurturing cats, helping with cleaning or landscape projects
at the shelter, participating in fundraising events or adoption promotions, every
volunteer contributes to our success.
The first step to volunteering at our shelter and/or our off-site events is to complete
our AWS Volunteer Application. Click on the link at the bottom of this page to open
the application. The form is a fillable PDF which you can complete, print then e-mail
back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we've had a chance to review your application, you will be contacted by our
Volunteer Coordinator. For those who want to volunteer at our shelter, you will need
to attend a New Volunteer Orientation prior to your first day with us. Please note
- you must be at least 12 years old to volunteer. Anyone under the age of 18 must
provide their parent's or legal guardian's written approval with the application.
Volunteers younger than 15 years of age must have their parent accompany them to
their New VolunteerOrientation and during subsequent volunteer experiences.
Thanks for your interest in helping AWS help animals!
To volunteer, please complete the form below and send to us. You may also call the
