Animal Services
The animal shelter is always looking for volunteers to help out with our lovable animals. If you're interested in volunteering, please fill out an application so we have your contact information. It is extremely helpful to have residents stop by to walk dogs or socialize with the cats and give them a chance to get out of their kennels more often.
The shelter also uses volunteer help to staff the adoption center at Pet Smart in Rogers and to take dogs to offsite adoption events as they come up. Volunteers can also help with fostering animals in their homes. For more information, please contact Karen Hillard, Volunteer Coordinator or visit our Volunteering and Fostering page.
