ArtieWant to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets? Join our volunteer program! If you have extra time in your day or if you cannot currently own a pet where you currently reside, volunteering allows you to fulfill your need by enriching both your lives and the lives of our dogs awaiting a new home.



Open your home and foster a pet for adoption. We are always in need of foster homes to provide out of shelter care for both dogs and cats of any age – from newborn to seniors. Fostering also allows us to rescue more pets in need, opening up space at the shelter.
