Join Our Team Today!

Volunteers have the opportunity to provide well-being for our animals, which includes walking dogs, socializing cats, grooming both cats and dogs, cleaning cages and litter boxes, and making sure all animals have adequate food and water. You can also volunteer to help at off site adoptions, events held at JCAS, grant writing, fostering and more. 

Volunteer Orientation


Initial orientation is held the second Saturday of every month at 10:00 in the main lobby of the Animal Shelter.

If you are still interested in volunteering after the initial orientation you will set up a 1 on 1 orientation with our volunteer trainers. On the day of meeting with our trainer, the volunteer must complete a Volunteer Application (PDF). You will receive a badge and more specific information related to what you are interested in doing. You cannot volunteer until your training is complete
