Socialize with cats and dogs – meet our pets, hold, play and comfort them
Walk dogs – check-in with shelter staff and select a dog that would benefit from a walk
Shelter cleaning – wash bowls, sweep, mop, help with laundry
Unfold newspapers – for use in pet cages
Shelter maintenance – Carpentry, electrical, mechanical and other skills are always needed for projects around the shelter.
Mobile Adoptions Assistant – Work with our volunteer leaders to transport dogs to various locations to meet and socialize with potential adoptive families. These events are primarily on weekends and can last 6-8 hours. Mobile adoption volunteers often experience the joy of watching a homeless pet meet their forever family for the first time.
Foster Volunteer – Foster volunteers provide a home environment for pets who are not comfortable in a shelter setting, are young and need special care or have medical challenges. Our staff will work with you to find a pet compatible with your family and home. FCHS provides supplies, food, medications and veterinary care for the foster pet. The duration of foster care varies depending upon foster family availability and pet needs. For more information, click here.
