Volunteer

Lighthouse Animal Shelter is an all volunteer organization. We are always looking for animal lovers to lend us a helping hand!

A typical shift working with our adoptable animals includes: Feeding, sweeping & mopping, socializing the dogs during play time, washing dishes, cleaning kennels, doing laundry, medicating (we will train you!), scooping litter boxes, and of course there is time for cuddling and playing with the dogs and cats.

Other volunteers who don't have a schedule that allows for shift work, can walk dogs, organize fundraisers, or do miscellaneous tasks around the shelter such as repairs, painting, yard work, or transporting animals to their vet appointments.
