Current volunteers, log in here:


Under VA Executive Order 53 and Coronavirus precautions, we have made temporary but significant changes to our volunteer program for current volunteers.

Please note that at this time, the volunteer program is open for essential tasks only, primarily ‘cat care‘ and ‘dog walking‘ tasks.
Please log onto Volgistics to see what tasks are open.
For additional questions about other essential tasks, email the Volunteer Coordinator.

In light of these changes, the two-shift-a-month minimum to remain active in the volunteer roster is currently on hold. No current volunteer will be rotated out of the system due to inactivity at this time.
Please keep yourselves safe and healthy, and know that our hearts are with you if you are choosing to self-quarantine. We will be here for you when the current crisis has passed and the volunteer program is back to normal.
Any further changes to the volunteer program for current volunteers will be announced via email. Please stay informed, and email the Volunteer Coordinator with any specific questions.


For new volunteers:

At this time, we are not accepting new volunteers into the program.
We have to use this hectic time to focus on animal care, adoptions, increased sanitation measures, and foster home coordination. We apologize that we do not currently have time to devote to orienting and training new volunteers.
We look forward to opening up our program to new volunteers again in the near future. Please check back on this page frequently.
We will be opening up our volunteer program to new trainees as soon as it is reasonable for us to do so.

One-time volunteer events or individual projects

If you are interested in setting up a one-time volunteer event with a group (scouts, workplace, military, etc.), or you are organizing a project to help our shelter (like an Eagle Scout project), please email our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected].
Because of social distancing protocols and coronavirus concerns, group volunteering is available on a VERY LIMITED basis only at this time, in groups of fewer than ten.

Community service volunteers
We work with volunteers who need to accumulate hours to fulfill court requirements, or submit hours to a legal authority, on a case-by-case basis. Our community service volunteering program is set up separately from our regular volunteering program.
**We do not send documentation to the courts for any hours performed outside of our established community service program.**
Follow this link for more information on our community service program. Our community service program is still active during this time.

With questions, email [email protected]
