Becoming a Volunteer Service Worker
Before considering service as a volunteer worker at the Shelter, please consider the following:
  • All volunteers are under the supervision of staff members. For many reasons including legal liabilities and safety concerns, we ask volunteers to cooperate with directions given by paid staff members. This will assist in maintaining order in the organization and safety for our pets, volunteers and visitors.
  • Priority is given to adoption, and volunteers help us make animals adoptable and provide care for the animals while they are visiting the shelter.
  • The PAC Volunteer program greatly enhances both the level of care given to the animals during their stay in the shelter, but more importantly, it affects the way many animals leave the shelter into loving, permanent homes! You can make a positive difference in the lives of our animals by volunteering at the shelter.

We encourage PAC Volunteers to do what they want to do and try to avoid putting volunteers in areas in which they are not comfortable. We know you will feel the rewards for your service through the appreciation of the animals you will interact with and as you see additional adoptions from the shelter! Our current volunteers know what we're talking about! Become a volunteer by filling out the PAC Volunteer application.
