New Volunteer Position Available
The main responsibility of this person would be to organize files and communicate with our current foster families and help look for new families to join our team. Why are foster homes so important? It is necessary to send our young animals and seniors into foster homes in order to keep them healthy and happy. Growing our foster list and helping promote those currently in foster care will help us continue to care for all of our shelter animals. Additional responsibilities of this position would include assistance in making spay/neuter appointments with our local vets.
If you are interested in this unique volunteer position, please contact Alex at the shelter. (530) 471-5041
