Work in an animal shelter

with Antioch Animal Services


Website Antioch Animal Services

Update from 9/20/20:

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we have had to suspend our volunteer program. I don’t expect that we will be able to allow volunteers again until after the first of the year. We will post updates on our website when we are able to restart the volunteer program.

Shelter essentials volunteers provide just that – the essentials of our shelters! Your help with daily shelter tasks will facilitate the smooth operation of caring for our animals. Volunteers are critical to our success and we simply could not maintain optimal shelter standards without your support.
