Program Information:

PAWS Humane's mission is to prevent overpopulation and suffering of companion animals, to teach kindness and responsibility toward them and to promote the remarkable capacity of pets to enrich human lives through pet-assisted therapy programs. We have an adoption center, spay/neuter clinic, and education center at the Animal Resource Center located on Milgen Road.

Job Description:

PAWS Humane provides volunteers with a wide variety of opportunities. Volunteers can assist with dog walking, socializing, off-site adoption events, humane education presentations, marketing, public relations, and more. Volunteers can help with as many or as few volunteer roles as they would like and are not limited to the existing volunteer opportunities.


All volunteers must complete a volunteer orientation, either at the monthly orientation or through a one-on-one session, and complete a volunteer application and waiver. The volunteer orientation will further explain PAWS, potential volunteer opportunities, and requirements.


Volunteers are welcome to assist us during our normal business hours Monday - Friday from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm and Saturday from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. PAWS is closed to the public on Sundays, but volunteers can help with off-site events between 1:00 and 5:00 pm. Volunteers are not restricted to a set schedule.
