We always welcome youth participation in our fundraising activities listed at the bottom of this page. Additionally, we do have some very limited positions for volunteers under 18.
Please note that a minimum time commitment of 6 months is required for certain volunteer positions.
Those 15+ (14+ if a parent is present during shifts) are eligible to volunteer in regular cat care & enrichment shifts or occasional cleaning help. Please note, these opportunities are limited & fill up very fast. Please contact our Shelter Operations Supervisor at the email below for more information. As of 9/2023, evening and weekend shifts are fully staffed.
Please note, our insurance policy stipulates that volunteers must be at least 18 years of age in order to work with our resident shelter dogs.
Until we can welcome you back in person, we would love to give your group a virtual tour.
Learn about what an animal shelter does and see some of the adoptable animals who are waiting for new homes. Tours include a take home virtual activity, which if completed and mailed back to the shelter, will earn participants a Homeless Animal Hero certificate.
Great for Scouts, Clubs, or other groups.

Do you have a creative idea for a fundraiser or project to benefit the shelter? We want to hear it! Pitch us your idea and we will support you in your journey to successfully accomplish your idea to help raise money, goods or awareness to the shelter or to one of the shelter’s programs.
If desired, interns can also attend a virtual Fundraising Committee meeting to gain more experience as well as to potentially help table SAS fundraising events when safe to do so again.
