CHA Animal Shelter is a volunteer, nonprofit animal shelter dedicated to finding homes for homeless cats and dogs. We rely on over 400 volunteers for their talent and the generosity of their time to accomplish this goal.
To get started with volunteering in the shelter, we ask that each potential volunteer attend an orientation and then a follow-up training class before beginning their first shift.
Examples of volunteer opportunities at CHA Animal Shelter are:

CHA Animal Shelter has a foster program that allows our volunteers to house animals with special needs on a temporary basis in their homes. This program allows CHA pets to recover from medical conditions, grow to a healthy and adoptable age, or just get relief from the stress of the shelter in a caring environment. The Foster program is open to all CHA volunteers. If you are unable to volunteer regularly with CHA Animal Shelter but are interested in providing temporary care and shelter to animals in need, you can begin the process to become a foster parent by attending a brief training and orientation.
