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.
To help improve the success of our animals' chances of adoption your main job will be to provide a positive, informed and friendly first impression to all our visitors and also assist with the initial adoption paperwork.
A main asset to our shelter are volunteers that help us transport our animals to and from vet visits, mobile adoption sites, and help with collecting fundraiser items. Transporters will need to use their own vehicle, trucks are recommended.
The shelter provides a variety of educational resources to assist the volunteers in presenting information programs about Ingham County Animal Shelter and responsible pet ownership for schools and community organizations.
Mobile Events/Special Events Volunteer:
We will need volunteers to help with our mobile adoptions. This will include greeters, animal handlers, transporters and fosters.
For more information please attend a volunteer meeting or contact the volunteer coordinator at 517-676-8311.
