Volunteer to Help
Volunteering is very fulfilling, makes a difference in animals lives, is a great way to meet new friends, and have fun! Below are multiple ways you can volunteer and help save lives.
Our adoption center is located inside That Fish Place-That Pet Place. We are currently open to the public Saturdays from 11:00am until 4:00pm. We will expand our hours as we grow our volunteer base. You will be able to talk to potential adopters, help take care of the pets, and help with adoption paperwork. Don't panic! You don't have to approve adoptions! If it is something you are interested in doing, we will gladly help you learn the process.
Fostering is a very rewarding and fulfilling experience. Please keep in mind it does have its ups and downs. Caring for a homeless pet until a permanent new home can be found or watching kittens and puppies grow up is a wonderful experience but the pets could harbor disease, develop behavior issues, and sadly, they can pass away. The greatest risk of losing foster animals is with babies that have lost their mother and need to be bottle fed. They are fragile and sometimes the best care in the world cannot save them. Fostering is critical to our success. We are currently all foster based and without fosters, we can't take in animals and save their lives. If you are interested, please let us know and we will send you detailed information and an application.
If you would like an application you can find a PDF download below, or visit us when the adoption center is open.
Other Ways to Help
- Setting up and tearing down for events.
- Helping at the event itself.
- Promoting events and helping gather donated items if they are needed.
Transporting pets to and from vet appointments or to and from adoption events. Fosters families aren't always available to bring in their pets during adoption hours and are happy for the help.
If your organization, social group or place of employment is looking for a way to be involved, gathering much needed supplies is a huge help! This is something that can be done one time or on a regular basis. Many kids enjoy asking for donations in lieu of gifts for their birthday parties. Whatever you choose to do is very helpful and greatly appreciated!
