To Get Involved:
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the KWHS to give your time and love to the animals in our care. We rely on our wonderful volunteers to help with many aspects of our shelter operations. Without our volunteers, we couldn’t do all the good things we do. Our volunteers make such a difference by enriching the animals’ time at the shelter and helping to place them in new homes.
We are extremely fortunate to consistently receive an overwhelming response from individuals who want to be a part of our program, so we are unable to accept all of them. If you are not accepted when you apply, you are welcome to apply again next time. Thank you again for your interest in donating your time and love to the care of the animals at the KWHS.
