Please fill out our online volunteer application below and answer all questions completely.
Note: If you are under 18 years of age, you must download the application and have it signed by your parent/guardian. A parent or guardian must remain at the shelter with any volunteer under the age of 15 while he or she is doing a shift. Although Whiskers welcomes people of all abilities, a volunteer who is mentally challenged must be accompanied by a responsible adult who will remain at the shelter during that volunteer's shift. Volunteers with mobility issues should be aware that our shelter occupies two floors, and there is a short staircase between two rooms on the first floor as well.
