Do you love spending time with animals? If so, we need you! There are multiple ways to get involved in a volunteer capacity at the Forsyth County Pet Resource Center.
Volunteer opportunities include:
Dog Walkers: Dog-walking volunteers work
one-on-one with dogs and puppies, taking them outside for exercise and training
and giving them all the love they need to thrive in a shelter environment. The
shelter can be a noisy and stressful place for dogs who have been lost or given
up on by their owners. Interaction with people is their best therapy.
Cat Cuddlers: Cat cuddlers hold, pet, interact
and brush the shelter’s felines. This allows cats to relax in the shelter where
there may be several strange smells and noises. The Cat Cuddler program allows
volunteers to interact with kittens and cats to help alleviate the animal’s
stress, thereby enabling the cat to become friendlier and calmer when
approached by potential adopters.
Event Volunteers: Volunteers are needed to
represent the Pet Resource Center at special events. Volunteers may be required
to assist with check-in, provide directions and set up and/or clean up, among other
special needs. Our event volunteers must have the ability to meet deadlines and
be flexible with job assignments.
Photography Volunteers: Volunteers are needed to
take pictures and shoot videos of our adoptable animals on a weekly basis for
the adoption section of our website and social media pages.
Doggy Day Out: Our Doggy Day Out program allows
those with a whole day or few hours to spare to help our shelter dogs.
Volunteers can check a dog out for the day and take them on an adventure.
Whether it’s cuddle time at their home or a great walk and car ride, it gives
our dogs a much-needed break from shelter life.
