Enrichment Construction Crew
The Enrichment Construction Crew is a weekly crafting group that assembles toys, treats, and other enrichment items for the cats and dogs living in the shelter. The group meets on Sunday afternoons from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. in our Education & Training Center.
Rescue Dog Intake Team
Currently trained dog program volunteers are welcome to take part in these weekly dog transfer events. In this special project, volunteers are assigned a dog to handle, feed, and house after its day-long, cross-country journey from a partner shelter.
In addition to the formal volunteer programs above, The Anti-Cruelty Society offers current volunteers the opportunity to take part in special projects throughout the organization. Opportunities to take part in one of these events are communicated to current volunteers through our weekly volunteer newsletter.
