There are a number of ways to help, either with community events or helping with ongoing activities at the clinic. The first step is to create a volunteer profile. Once you are approved, you can register for events and activities. See a current list of community events and ongoing opportunities.
Play with Dogs and Cats
While FACE is NOT an animal shelter and does not actively take in animals from the public, we have acquired several cats and a few dogs that have come to us via team members or other rescue situations in which the animal was at risk. These animals will temporarily stay at FACE until we can find them their forever homes. While they wait, it is important they become well socialized to increase their chances of adoption. Volunteering in our cat room is always appreciated and can be done just about any day and anytime. This includes socializing and helping to keep their rooms clean. Volunteers interested in socializing our dogs must be 21 or over and have some experience.
We LOVE our cage cleaners! Every evening at check-out, all cages and kennels have to be cleaned for the next day’s patients. This is a way to be a super volunteer with a one or two-hour weekly commitment. This opportunity is available Tuesday through Thursday from 5pm to 7pm.
Give our dogs some exercise and get some yourself. The hours for dog walking are between 10am and 2pm during the week and on weekends. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Help out our team by making rabies tags, preparing Elizabethan collars, popping syringes and filing patient records. By performing these tasks we are able to keep up on things we use everyday which saves us time and allows our clinic to operate smoothly. This opportunity is available every day of the week during open hours.
Please Note: The age requirement to volunteer in the clinic is 13+. Volunteers between the ages of 13-15 must have a parent/guardian present at all times. If you have a child under 13 who wants to help FACE please contact us at email@example.com for a list of ways to help outside the clinic.
