Welcome to the Metro Animal Shelter’s Volunteer Program. Being a volunteer is extremely rewarding, educational, and fun. You can have a significant positive impact on the lives of homeless animals. Walking a dog, cuddling a cat, giving a treat or blanket, or giving a simple pat on the head will touch your heart and bring you back for more. It is especially rewarding to see how the animals respond immediately to the love they receive while they are at the shelter. As a result of the volunteer program, dogs get walked regularly and cats are more socialized. Animals get placed in foster homes when they are too young to adopt or need to recuperate from injury or illness, or just need a little more socialization. Most importantly, because of volunteers, many dogs’ and cats’ lives are saved. The Metro Animal Shelter Volunteer Program was created for the animals.
