Make a Difference: Volunteer!

The Sanctuary at Haafsville is very proud of the commitment and dedication of our volunteers.  As we are a volunteer-based 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. 

 

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 VolunteersBuilding/Maintenance Volunteers, as well as other opportunities!

 

  • Students and others required to do community service will be welcomed to do so at The Sanctuary—a place of peace and mutual benefit.
  • Youths and seniors, individually or in groups, will be encouraged to come and spend time helping to care for our animals and socializing with them. The animals will benefit from their attention and the people will gain the joy and comfort of interaction with animals.
  • The Sanctuary will provide scouting groups opportunities to help them qualify for badges or provide community service.
  • Other youth groups, such as Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and church groups will have a place to assemble, to enjoy time with each other and with the animals.

April
April is a very loving cat with a gentle personality. She is hesitant to trust new people but once she does, she is a total love bug. At the shelter April can generally be found peeking around the corner or from across the room to decide if she is going to be brave enough to seek some petting. Once she gets the courage to approach a volunteer, she is all about soaking in the love. She especially enjoys having the side of her face is scratched. April isn't quick to trust but she is quick to love once she is won over.
 
April will require new owners who are extremely patient and understanding. She will need much love and reassurance. April should be provided adequate time to adjust to a new home. April won't be the cat who immediately jumps in your lap. However, she deserves a wonderful home and your patience will be greatly rewarded.
 
April is 2 years old, healthy, spayed, vaccinated, negative for FeLV and litter trained.
