Dog and Cat Volunteers Wanted!
Are you looking for an opportunity to help homeless pets in your community? The Douglas County Animal shelter is always looking for new volunteers to help provide love, care and socialization to the 500+ animals that come through our doors each year.
Dog walking volunteers work one on one with the adoptable dogs, taking them outside for exercise, and giving them the love that they need. The shelter can be a noisy and stressful place for animals, and we believe that the interaction with our volunteers is their best therapy. The dog walking program gives the essential quality time with people who care about them.
Cat volunteers perform a similar task, by holding, petting and brushing the adoptable cats, allowing them to relax in the shelter environment, and enabling the cat to become more friendly and calm when approached by a potential adopter.
If you are 16 years of age or older, you may volunteer to work hands on with the animals at the shelter. If you are younger than 16 years of age, you may accompany your parent or legal guardian, but you may not work hands on with the animals. For more information call the shelter at (775)782-9061
Antelope Valley Women’s Club is currently accepting applications to reserve booth space at our Annual Fundraising Bazaar in November 2019. Call Georgette at (760)616-4163
