We are always in need of volunteers! AWF is still in existence today due to our dedicated volunteers and we’re always looking to add to that list. Whether you want to help once a month or every week, we have a job for you! You can always stop in during open hours as we will find you a task.

If you would like begin volunteering for AWF, please fill out our Volunteer Sign Up form!

Volunteers are needed for:

  • Socializing/exercising animals at the Shelter
  • Brushing animals at the shelter
  • Cleaning dog kennels or cat rooms at the Shelter (training required)
  • Entering animal info into management systems
  • Filing shelter paperwork
  • Covering the front desk during open hours (training required)
  • Transporting animals to vet appointments & events
  • Transporting donations
  • Helping plan, setup, and run fundraisers & events
  • Baking for bake sales
  • Shelter van maintenance
  • Lawnmowing

Please note that most volunteer opportunities at the shelter are limited to persons 14 years and older for safety reasons. Though, children accompanied by adults can help socialize cats, walk dogs, etc. Feel free to reach out for more details – and we will add more details here as we are able. Thank you!
