About the C.A.R.E.S. Volunteer Program

As a small community shelter, C.A.R.E.S. relies on our excellent and varied team of volunteers to help with day-to-day shelter operations, animal care, and special events.  Their generous donations of time and energy help us take great care of our animals and facilities, and we truly couldn't do it without them!

Our volunteers run the gamut from school kids to retirees--we accept court-ordered community service volunteers, high school students with senior service requirements, and just ordinary citizens with a desire to help animals in need.

Volunteers must be at least high school age (younger people can volunteer along with their parents).  All volunteers are required to participate in an initial orientation session as well as on-the-job training.  Orientation sessions are generally held the third Thursday of every month.

If you are interested in becoming a C.A.R.E.S. volunteer, contact us and ask for Crysi, our Volunteer Coordinator.  You may also email Crysi directly at CJahnkeCares@gmail.com

Thanks for your interest in being a C.A.R.E.S. volunteer!
