Becoming a Volunteer
Thank you for your interest in joining the Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center’s Volunteer Program! 2019 has been a record-breaking and record-setting year for our Volunteer Program. Over 1,600 individuals have contributed more than 34,000 hours volunteering at the shelter… which is more than any other year in the entire history of the Volunteer Program! We are continually humbled and honored by the sheer magnitude of people wanting to volunteer their time helping the dogs in our care.
Unfortunately, due to the extremely high volume of individuals currently waiting to join our Volunteer Program, (we are currently in the process of actively on-boarding more than 60 new Volunteers and have almost 200 people currently signed up to attend our next orientation), we are not accepting new applicants. Be sure to check back in early Febraury 2020 for more information about when we will be accepting new applicants into our Volunteer Program. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and patience.
If you are interested in a one-time group volunteering opportunity, contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
