Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering at the Shelter


Animal Control encourages individuals and groups to volunteer at the shelter. After a brief orientation, volunteers may walk dogs, play in the interaction pens, and even bathe dogs to make them more adoptable. Volunteers may also interact with and socialize cats. Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a supervising adult.

If you have a large group (more than five) please email Michelle Carrigg (michelle.carrigg@athensclarkecounty.com) to schedule an appointment with the following:
1) Date(s) and time(s) interested
2) Possible number in group
3) Name of group (if applicable)
4) Information for contact person
