To volunteer at an animal shelter, contact your local animal shelter or humane society and let them know you are interested in volunteering. You can also visit their website to see if there are any volunteer applications available. Or, if you prefer, you can go to a local shelter in person and fill out an application. Animal shelters have all kinds of volunteer positions available, such as animal walkers and handlers, groomers, photographers, and website support, so be sure you let the volunteer coordinator know if you have any special skills that would be helpful.
