Shelter Volunteer

Animal Services and Control welcomes volunteers to help with the animals who are awaiting adoption. Volunteers play an important role in the success of the Animal Shelter and can assist staff with a wide variety of tasks. In addition, the time that volunteers spend with animals improves the pets’ socialization skills and helps them be more ready for adoption into a furever home.

There are many opportunities to volunteer, ranging from walking dogs to assisting staff at adopt-a-thons and other special events. Daily tasks at the animal shelter includes:

  • cleaning cages
  • cleaning dog runs
  • socializing animals
  • walking dogs
  • and feeding the pets

Volunteering with animals can be a wonderful experience. If you are interested in volunteering at the animal shelter, please contact Currituck Animal Services and Control .

Please fill out an online line application or mail or bring an volunteer application to the Animal Shelter.

Staff can provide information on what types of opportunities are available and what type of help is needed most.
