Lend Your Paws Quartely Community Volunteer Event

Wednesday, August 15th from  3pm to 5pm
We are asking supporters to join us at the shelter for our "Lend your Paws" quarterly event. These "do-good" hours happen four times a year and allows groups, businesses and families a chance to give back. We will be operating a huge social media event this time. Asking volunteers to simply come interact with our pets and send pictures and videos out on your platforms of choice to get them adopted! Sign up by calling the shelter or emailing
