Virulent Newcastle Disease Update from State Veterinarian

This week brings some good news and, unfortunately, some disappointing news, as well. The regional quarantine is still in effect. For a list of virulent Newcastle disease cases since the outbreak began in May 2018, visit the USDA VND website.

We appreciate your desire to sign up to volunteer and help our shelter animals. However, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are suspending our volunteer recruitment program. We hope we will be back to normalcy soon. As for now, we thank you for the interest and we wish you and your family safe and healthy days.

“Even if you just change one life, you’ve changed the world forever.” – Mike Satterfield

There are so many great reasons to volunteer. Meet new people, experience the satisfaction of community service, develop new skills, acquire work experience for future endeavors, and most of all HELP US SAVE LIVES.

Our volunteers improve the welfare of our shelter animals by walking a dog, brushing and petting cats, transporting and/or cleaning animals at our local pet stores, assisting with adoptions, assisting with our community cat program and/or trap neuter release program, join our photography teams, give a dirty doggy a bath, reading to a dog, clinic and/or shot clinic support, events, clerical and so much more.


INSTRUCTIONS:

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer; please watch orientation video below, fill out the quiz and wait for the webpage to redirect you to the application page. Fill out application for the shelter nearest you, once completed, we will contact you to attend our dog behavior training, background check, and we will conduct a hands on welcome training. Once your background check clears you are ready to begin volunteering to help save animals lives.
