The Friends' programs are funded solely through donations and help from volunteers.

We Need Your Help!

Volunteers are very important to the pets waiting for homes at the Pet Center!

Our volunteers can be found walking dogs, tossing a ball in the play yards, teaching commands, photographing animals for social media, interacting with cats in the play room, bathing dogs, and assisting with adoptions at our PetSmart and Nocatee Farmers Market offsite events.

Without our volunteers, the animals would rarely get to leave their kennels. Volunteers keep the Pet Center animals happy and healthy, which makes it easier for them to find homes!

Ready to Start?

The first step is to fill out our Volunteer Application and submit your completed application to the front desk at the Pet Center.

Once it has been approved, you will be contacted to schedule your volunteer orientation.

After completing the Pet Center volunteer orientation you can assist with the animals at the Pet Center and at our offsite events, too!
