When in our shelter, please continue to wear masks and honor our safety protocols.

Volunteer Opportunities


We know PFS could not exist without volunteers. We rely on the help of caring and hard-working volunteers at our shelter, our resale shop and as foster parents. We know that our animals’ chances of adoption increases because of human contact.  Volunteers also help us inform the community of the goals and objectives of PFS, promote responsible pet ownership and raise money to help keep our doors open.  The future of PFS depends largely on its volunteers. We are all working together for the animals.
