Group Volunteering

We are honored that your group would like to give of your time to help at the shelter. Group volunteering is currently closed though we hope to one day open this opportunity back up again! If you'd still like to get your group involved, we'd greatly appreciate it. We'd be happy to work with you on setting up a donation drive. You can check out our needs here. If you'd like to set up a peer-to-peer fundraising initiative, we'd be happy to talk with you more about that, too!
