Volunteer Overview

While monetary donations and donation of physical goods are critical to our operation, the giving of your time is also an invaluable resource for our organization.  We rely on the help of our volunteers daily to help us provide the best possible care for our animals.  Year round we welcome help with a large variety of tasks that need to be done here at The Little Guild.

     

  What Kind of Positions are Available?

We are currently in need of:

  • Volunteer Program Coordinator (someone to oversee the program)

  • Cat Socialization

  • Event Support  

  • Although we are not in need of dog walkers now, we are looking for Dog Socialization volunteers as well as volunteers to Transport/work with dogs at upcoming events.

Please complete the online application form.  Please note, due to the high volume of requests that we receive, and our limited physical space, we are not able to accommodate all applicants.  Positions for volunteers are filled based on our current scheduling needs and positions available.
