Requirements for being a WCGHS Volunteer

  • Dog shelter volunteers must be 18 years or older.
  • Volunteers 8 years and up are allowed to volunteer in our cat shelter with a parent/guardian who is also volunteering. Note there is a high demand for family volunteers, so there may be a several month wait to volunteer. We appreciate your patience.
  • Volunteers must be able to squat, bend, twist, lift, or stand for long periods of time as well as lift items (think dog or cat food bags) when working directly in our shelters with the animals.
  • All volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per month to remain an active volunteer.
  • A passion for the work and mission of WCGHS!

WCGHS Volunteer Waiver

It is required for all WCGHS volunteers to sign our volunteer waiver and agreement which is presented during the orientation process.
