Attending a volunteer orientation is the first step in becoming a volunteer here at People’s Animal Welfare Society (P.A.W.S.). Before anyone can start volunteering, they must attend this orientation. Here you will learn the basics of being a volunteer, and will be trained in handling dogs or cats.
As a non-profit organization, we greatly value our dedicated volunteers. In becoming a volunteer, you become part of our team, representing P.A.W.S. to the general public and helping us in supporting the animals at the shelter. Whether you work directly with the animals or assist with other tasks around the building, whatever you choose to do has a tremendously positive impact on our shelter and the animals. We simply wouldn’t be able to do it all without you!
All new volunteers are required to participate in a volunteer orientation before they may start actively volunteering at the shelter. Please keep an eye on our upcoming volunteer orientation for next exciting opportunity!
Work one-on-one with the dogs to walk, socialize, and learn basic training commands.
Volunteers take the shelter cats out of the cages to provide exercise, grooming, and socialization.
Volunteers take animals to designated locations and promote the adoptions of these pets. They also distribute information about the shelter, collect donations, promote membership, and interact with the public.
Volunteers attend special events, either on site or at various locations to promote the shelter and assist in collecting donations, and handling shelter animals ready for adoption.
Sewing and craftmaking:
Volunteers make items such as dog scarves, pillows, ect. to sell at the shelter and at various events.
