In order to interact directly with the animals at the shelter, volunteers must meet the 2 hour per week volunteer requirement for a period of 6 months. If this won’t work with your schedule, don’t worry! There are lots of other ways to help the animals and the shelter such as at home service projects, the foster program, or the Loudoun Pet Pantry. If none of these seem right for you, there are many other animal welfare organizations in the area. A great place to start finding other animal related volunteer opportunities is Metro Pets online.
