Animal Services still needs your continued support as they move forward toward its goal of saving each and every healthy, homeless pet in Huntsville.

"We need those willing individuals to email or call us so we may add them to our list of community volunteers."

Multiple volunteer opportunities are available are available at the Animal Shelter including fostering, bathing dogs, "bottle babies," helping with the community cat initiative, data entry, kitchen or laundry duty, or playing with the animals.

Volunteers can email Dr. Sheppard at karen.sheppard@huntsvilleal.gov. Emails should include a name, email, phone number and how the volunteer would like to be involved.
