public events

Join us in raising funds and promoting the shelter at various public events! You can help by serving food during events, helping with raffles, or handing out informational brochures that promote our adoptable animals! The more people are aware of us, the more animals we are able to place in their forever homes! Events include brat frys, dog washes, bowling tournaments, golf outings, dinners, parades, and helping out at established local fundraising events such as 'The Boo Bash' and 'A Nite at the Bistro'.

daily shelter tasks include

Cleaning dishes, kennels, and cages      

Doing Laundry        

Walking Dogs       

Socializing Animals

Dog Training: help the dogs learn the best manners possible to increase their chances at adoption!       

Keeping our building and grounds in top shape not only makes us more appealing to the public, it also ensures that the animals, staff and volunteers are comfortable and safe.  If you are handy and would like to donate some time and effort, we are always looking for talented, hard-working individuals to complete any of the following:


Seasonal Cleaning     


Mowing and trimming      

Planting, watering, and/or weeding

Maintaining kennels and fencing (securing hardware, repairs)
