For each displaced animal that comes to BrightSide Animal Center, there is an opportunity for animal shelter volunteers to provide exercise, socialization, cleaning, grooming, fundraising, and fostering to help make animals healthy and friendly pets for their permanent new homes.
Who Can Be an Animal Shelter Volunteer?
Persons age 16 and older may volunteer. Children and teens ages 12—15 may volunteer if accompanied by an adult. For the Dog Buddy program, volunteers must be at least 18 years old; children and younger teens are not permitted to walk dogs or to accompany dog-walking volunteers.
