Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Lester C. Howick Animal Shelter. If you love animals and want to do something to help, please considering becoming a Volunteer.


Dog Walking
Help keep our shelter dogs happy and healthy!  Volunteers considering dog walking should be comfortable with dogs of all size, breed, and age. The time commitment is two hours per week.

Adoption Counselor
Assist visitors in their search for a great companion. Be familiar with the animals available for adoption. This position requires advanced training. We encourage volunteers to spend time in direct animal care before making this commitment.

Dog Training
Do you love working with dogs in a positive, interactive way? You can help our dogs in need of manners learn good "in kennel" and "out of kennel" behavior. This means teaching them to sit, lie down, and stay. The ability to walk on a loose leash and not jump up on people is a huge step in both becoming adopted and staying in the home. Shifts are 2 hours per week.

Cat Care
Spend time helping our cats get lots of TLC. Petting and playing with our cats greatly relieves the stress and confusion of shelter life. A scared or shy cat will often blossom with a little attention. As a Cat Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to offer your care and affection to our adoptable cats and kittens.
