The Sanctuary at Haafsville is very proud of the commitment and dedication of our volunteers. As we are a volunteer-run organization, we could not save all these dogs and cats without YOU!
What does it mean to become a Volunteer at The Sanctuary?
Volunteering is a mutually beneficial arrangement for both the volunteers and the animals. Though volunteers will of course care for the animals; the animals also give back to volunteers. Through the animals’ gentle presence, individuals and groups can gain peace and a sense of purpose.
Committed volunteers socialize, walk, clean, and love the animals entrusted to our care. They also show animals at offsite locations, work special events, and expand their knowledge of animal behavior.
We are looking for volunteers that can be scheduled for ongoing, regular, 2-3 hour weekly or bi-weekly shifts. The minimum requirement for initial volunteers is to commit to these regular hours for at least a 3-month term after signing up. It takes a lot of effort and time to train new volunteers to please be prepared of these expectations. For folks who cannot make this type of commitment, we also need Event & Fundraising Volunteers, Building/Maintenance Volunteers, as well as other opportunities!
