No Animal deserves to Suffer
Help our animals rehabilitate.
We want to unleash your talent.
We rely on our dedicated volunteers to help us rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for animals in Moore County. We need you to help us fulfill our mission. In addition to working directly with our animals, we are also looking for volunteers with skills to help us with event organization and support, marketing, photography, graphic design, social media and facility maintenance. Consider sharing your time and talent with us to make an impact in the lives of the animals we care for.
Your time matters. With us, you will make a difference.
Sign up to attend a New Volunteer Orientation by appointment only at the shelter.
Once you have registered, our Volunteer Coordinator will email you to arrange a one-hour orientation appointment, usually held monthly.
Note: new volunteers under 16 must attend the Orientation with an adult (over 18) and must be supervised by an adult while volunteering at the shelter and all off-site events. Our minimum volunteer age is 9 or older. A parent may volunteer with two children (between 9-16 years) who have all attended orientation. Our shelter building and rooms are quite small and can get congested, especially in the kitten room, and we need to consider the safety of our animals at play in the room.
2. Complete Forms
*Download and print the Volunteer Application and Agreement and the Volunteer Orientation Manual. Complete the forms and bring them to the Orientation. Please read through the manual before attending the Orientation session.
3. Attend Orientation
Join us for an hour of hands-on learning. Orientation is required before you are able to volunteer with the animals. Don’t forget to bring your completed forms with you.
4. Commit to Care
Once you’ve attended Orientation and have submitted your paperwork, you will receive a welcome email and an invitation to SignUp, which is how volunteers sign up for shifts at the shelter.
As you know, shelter animals require consistent care and attention. For this reason, we ask volunteers to commit to a schedule for volunteering with us. Our expectation is that volunteers will commit to a minimum of (1) or (2) two-hour sessions a month, whether at the shelter or at off-site events.
