Do you like dogs? Cats? Cleaning? Answering phones? Office work? Special Events? “Handyman” projects? Photography? Kids?
We have something for everyone!
Join us 10:30 – 12:00 on the second Saturday of most months, to learn about CVHS and all our volunteer opportunities. (Upcoming session is April 13.) The information session is held at the shelter, 1589 VT Route 14S, E. Montpelier. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend — space is limited.
Do you have a quiet space in your home that could house baby kittens or an adult animal in need of medical care? Learn more about our foster program by clicking here.
Animal Care Volunteers:
Are you able to commit to a regular schedule? Animal care volunteers come in for morning shifts of 2-3 hours a minimum of once weekly. These volunteers perform all essential animal care and cleaning needed on a daily basis prior to opening for the public.
Do you have a few hours a week to volunteer? There are always a number of things to do to support our office staff, including organizing office materials, stuffing envelopes, photocopying and cleaning.
Special Event Volunteers:
Do you enjoy the excitement associated with special events? If you want to help out, but can’t commit to a regular schedule, then being a special event volunteer may be just the right match. You can assist with events like our Walk for Animals, Fur Fest, Holiday with the Animals, and more!
Landscape and Facilities Maintenance Volunteers:
Do you enjoy gardening or landscaping? Do you have a knack for building maintenance projects? We can always use a hand with these special needs to keep our facility looking and functioning at its best.
Do you have the ability to transport animals occasionally? Our transport needs are very diverse and sometimes require little to no notice; other times they can be scheduled in advance. Animals need to be transported around town, throughout the state and sometimes across state lines for reasons including medical needs, transferring or adoption. We have a great new van that can be used for most transportation needs.
Whether you can come in on a regular schedule or just simply the occasional shift, we always have projects and tasks to be done. If you want to volunteer, but are not sure of the best fit, let us know and we will work together to find a match.
