DRHS protects and promotes the well-being of all animals by fostering respect for their inherent dignity. We do this by educating youth on the humane treatment of animals, providing shelter and care for unwanted and abandoned animals, visiting nursing homes and assisted living facilities for pet therapy, and socializing animals to give them a better quality of life.
Volunteer Need 1
Exercise and socialization volunteer: volunteer at the shelter and play with and socialize our adoptable cats & dogs. This opportunity is crucial for our animals because it gives them time out of their cage and time to bond.
Volunteer Need 2
Off-Site volunteer: Bring adoptable animals to various events in the community. These events are wonderful because they give the adoptable animals the opportunity to be seen outside of the shelter environment and hopefully adopted!
