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 the 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.
You can see the volunteer positions that always need to be filled at AC&C. Note that the Dog on the Run program requires the full volunteer sign up and processing, and volunteers must be approved to retrieve the dogs and attend the DOTR orientation.
If you have any questions or are interested in volunteering, please contact Lori Todd at email@example.com.
Ready to join the team? Great! Contact Lori and she'll send you the application. Once you fill that out, send it in the mail or bring it to the shelter.

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 always 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and he will be happy to answer them. One on one interviews are possibly but by appointment only.
If you are looking to volunteer due to a court order, please contact Lori at email@example.com
