VOLUNTEER INFORMATION

On any given day you can find volunteers helping shelter staff ensure that our animals receive the kind of one-on-one care and attention that the Edison Animal Shelter prides itself on.

Volunteers contribute their time and talents across a wide range of chosen activities, from walking dogs and socializing kittens to greeting visitors, weeding gardens and assisting at special events.

New volunteer orientation sessions help familiarize new volunteers with shelter practices and procedures, and our friendly staff members are always available to offer pointers on dealing with the needs of individual animals.

The Edison Animal Shelter’s  scenic setting (near Lake Pappianni), immaculate kennel areas and cheerful free-roaming cat room make volunteering a pleasure.  Plus, volunteering at the Edison Animal Shelter is a good way to make new friends while making a real difference in your community.
