Volunteer Guidelines

Thank you for volunteering during this time!

MPORTANT -- To volunteer during COVID:


1. Masks must be worn at all times at the shelter.


2. A distance of six feet must be maintained for volunteers and staff.


We must follow the state requirements to stay safe. Thank you for bearing with us during this time.

Bethann Galbraith, Shelter Manager

General Volunteering Tips/Precautions
