Each month the shelter staff present a monthly new volunteer orientation for anyone interested in volunteering at the shelter. Volunteers must be willing to donate 3 hours per week in order to be considered for the volunteer program. You must be over 18 years old to handle animals at our facility. Children under 17 years old must have a parent or guardian with them at all times.
Our next new volunteer orientation is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th at 2pm here at the shelter. You will need to purchase a $10.00 (discounted rate) DMCHS t-shirt to participate as a volunteer at our shelter. If you have questions, please call 319.753.8389.
