Socialization and Enrichment 

Socializing and enrichment are two of the most important volunteer jobs at SHS! Whether it be sitting in a cat room grooming a kitty or doing clicker training with a pup who needs some extra attention, EVERY little bit helps! With the hustle and bustle of the shelter environment, staff does not always have a chance to spend one-on-one time with the pets awaiting their new homes every day. This is why volunteers are SO important! Come sit with a litter of puppies or a room full of kittens, eager to play and give love. Come whisper sweet nothings to a scared, feral kitty. Come show a homeless pet that YOU care; That humans are kind. All it takes is 30 minutes in your local shelter to make a difference to one pets life. Be the difference, come volunteer today!
