Volunteer Info

WELCOME! We're happy that you're interested in volunteering your time and energy at the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter. The life of an animal in a shelter can be very challenging. Getting an opportunity every day to have special time and attention is what helps them "get by with a little help from their friends." Our volunteers are truly best friends to the animals in our care, and many volunteers have said that they personally get a huge reward from their time with the animals. Plus, they get to meet other great animal lovers. It's a win, win partnership! We REALLY hope that you'll join our team of volunteers, either working directly with the animals at one of the shelters or fostering an animal in need in your home or participating in some of our other volunteer activities.
