As they say... it takes a village. Volunteers are necessary to keep the pets awaiting homes or those waiting to be reunited with their owners comfortable, happy, and healthy. Whether it be throwing a ball, cleaning cages, brushing fur, scratching ears, painting walls, or scooping poop, every volunteer is a tremendous asset. Please inquire at the shelter to see how you can help and to pick up a volunteer application.
Volunteers of all ages are welcome at Desert Haven Animal Society! Children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent at all times and are only permitted to work with cats due to safety precautions. Young adults 16 to 17 years old may volunteer unaccompanied with the cats. Those 18 and older may volunteer with both dogs and cats.
