Animal Shelter

Are you interested in volunteering? You've come to the right place! Our community volunteers are essential to our running a successful shelter. Volunteer duties vary greatly on a daily basis, but these are just a few things volunteers regularly help us with: 

  • Daily cleaning
  • Monday/Wednesday deep cleaning
  • Scooping litter boxes
  • Socializing cats/feral kittens
  • Laundry
  • Dishes

In addition, we will soon offer a dog-walking training program if you would like to work with our canine friends.


Want to become part of our volunteer team? Fill out our volunteer application below, or print out the application found  here, and drop it by the shelter in person. If you have more questions, feel free to email Dory Diaz, our Volunteer Coordinator, at dory@fcanimalshelter.org.

Could you be a Foster Parent? 

We sometimes have a need for volunteers who are willing to foster kittens surrendered to us when they are too young to fend for themselves. In those cases, we use foster parents to administer feedings, necessary medication, and lots and lots of love. Would you like to be one of them? Fill out the below application! We will review your application and perform a home visit, and once you are approved, we'll add you to our list of willing foster parents.
