Notice: Foster Volunteering – Our foster needs have been met at this time. We will update this page if that changes. Thank you so much for your interest in helping the animals.
Volunteering at Bonnie Hays is a fun and rewarding experience, and we'd love to have you join our team!
At Bonnie Hays, we provide a safe and compassionate environment to the animals that come through our doors, thanks in part to our team of dedicated volunteers.
The following volunteer opportunities are available:
  • Shelter assistant volunteers help the shelter operate smoothly by washing dishes and doing laundry.
  • Dog volunteers clean kennels and provide training and enrichment to adoptable dogs.
  • Cat volunteers clean litter boxes and provide training and enrichment to adoptable cats.

We ask volunteers to be 16 years of age or older and commit to at least one two-hour shift every week for a minimum of six months.
