How to Become a Volunteer

  • Complete the volunteer application below.

  • You will be contacted within a few days by a staff member, and we will let you know upcoming volunteer needs and events.

Volunteer Opportunites


  • Adoption events, Fundraising events, Community outreach events

  • Event Volunteers are essential in making an event a success. Whether it is an adoption event, fundraising event, or a community outreach event, we cannot do them without volunteers. Event volunteers are the key to being able to take more animals to or have more time for people to come by during an event. If you can’t be a volunteer during the week, events may be right up your alley. From setting up the HSDC information table and cat adoption cages to handling dogs on leashes for people to meet, greeting the public, or transporting animals to and from the event, there are many duties to be covered and we can always use help for these.


  • Donation pick-ups at certain places or people.

  • Transporting dogs and cats to vets, rescues, and spay/neuter clinic.

  • Drive cats/dogs to other rescues or spay/neuter clinics

  • Help load/unload carriers of cats/dogs into the transport vehicle

PetSmart Adoption Cages

  • We have partnered with PetSmart on Hanes Mall Blvd in Winston-Salem and have 4 cat cages with adoptable cats and kittens housed there.

  • Volunteers are needed to clean the cat cages daily and of course love on the cats that will be staying there until they are adopted.

  • We would need to have someone show you around for your first shift. If you’re interested, let us know and we can send you the link to sign up and more details.
