The animals and staff at CMPD Animal Care & Control need you! We are a very busy shelter with many animals and people entering through our doors. We strive to provide the best possible service and always need additional volunteers! Our shelter volunteers are able to request training within the areas of their interest and are asked to stay practiced, for safety, through consistently volunteering at least 4 monthly hours. In order to volunteer with CMPD Animal Care & Control, you must be at least 18 years of age and complete a drug test. Background checks also will be conducted on all applicants.
Check out the dropdown boxes below to see all the volunteer positions that we always need filled. Note that in order to participate with the Dog on the Run program you must be a fully approved AC&C volunteer.
If you have any questions, please contact Lori Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ready to join the volunteer team? Great! Fill out the volunteer application.
Are you looking to volunteer in the Kitten Nursery? Great! Get started on our foster or nursery page.
ATTENTION ALL HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS: If you have chosen animal fields or animal cruelty/abuse for your projects, please read carefully. We know that your projects require volunteer hours but you MUST be 18 to volunteer and it could take up to 2-3 months to enter the program so you will not be able to volunteer at the shelter.
As an alternative, we always need money and supplies to help our shelter animals. If your project allows, you can hold a fundraiser and/or donation drive for us. Head to the donation page to find out what supplies we need, and which funds you'd like to finance.
If your project includes a questionnaire, please email our Officer Shrewsbury at email@example.com and he will be happy to answer them. One on one interviews are possible but by appointment only.
If you are looking to volunteer due to a court order, please contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
