Animal Control Facility

Volunteers Needed

Do you love working and being with animals? Walking dogs? Caring for cats? Interacting with the public? Helping with an adoption process?

If you do have as little as two (2) hours per week available in your busy schedule we would love have you on our team. We offer a very flexible volunteering schedule because our animals need care every day of the week. You will find that Volunteering is a great way to contribute to our community, meet other animal lovers, and feel better about yourself.

So if you have some free time, stop into the Polverari-Southwick Animal Shelter during our public hours and ask to fill-out a volunteer application. All applicants with go through a standard background check prior to working at our shelter. Once the background check is completed, a volunteer coordinator will contact you to setup an initial interview and develop a schedule that will not only meet the needs of the shelter but will coincide with the hours you have available.

Due to liability concerns all volunteers who work at the Animal Shelter must be at least 18 years old.

We look forward to having you submit an application. As always your help no matter how little or how large is greatly appreciated.
