Volunteering is one way to give back to the community. We struggle without volunteers. Abandoned and abused dogs need to interact with people to get used to human interaction. They also need to be fed and walked regularly.

1. It is Beneficial for Your Emotional & Mental Health

Generally speaking, volunteering has positive emotional and psychological effects. Working with animals has additional benefits that can boost your overall health. Petting and cuddling pets have been shown to reduce blood pressure and increase levels of serotonin and dopamine (these hormones help you relax and manage depression and stress).

2. There Are Lots of Fun Activities to Do

You can pick from an activity that you enjoy even as you help out at the shelter. For example, if you love photography, you can volunteer to take photos of the dogs. We need volunteers for:

  • Simple construction

  • Updated pictures of our dogs 

  • Cleaning/Feeding

  • Playing/Socializing the dogs 

3. Prepare Yourself to Adopt a Pet

Volunteering is a great way to gain experience in taking care of dogs. There are lots of things you can learn about taking care of pets. If you plan to adopt a pet in the future, working at a shelter will give you the experience you need. You can tap into the knowledge of other experts.

4. Open Up New Opportunities

Volunteer work has many long-term benefits and can open up new opportunities for you. You can use the experience on your resume. You may also use the experience to find a job or another volunteering opportunity.

Time to Get Involved


The beauty of volunteering for a local animal shelter is that you can choose from many activities and responsibilities. The work hours can be flexible, allowing you to commit a few hours a week. Always choose something you enjoy so that you can make the most of the experience. At Easy's, there is always a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Feel free to call or visit to learn more.
