Dog & Cat Socializer

Want to work directly with animals? You’ll love being a volunteer socializer!

Animals are more adoptable if they are socialized. As a dog or cat socializer, you’ll spend time petting, playing with, grooming, and exercising our animals. You can choose to socialize dogs or cats, or both. You can volunteer any time Monday – Saturday, 8:30am – 3:30pm. We can accommodate just about anyone’s schedule.

We suggest that socializers commit to 4 – 8 hours per month, so there is continuity with the animals. However, there is no minimum commitment requirement, and you can volunteer as many hours as you wish.

Requirements for socializers:

  • Love working with animals
  • At least 18 years old – or at least 16 years old if there is parental supervision when the minor is volunteering
  • Complete a brief training with our team
  • Review and sign a Volunteer Release Form
