Animal Caretakers

For those who prefer work behind the scenes, we need help caring for the animals’ daily needs. Working alongside the staff, volunteers assist with feeding, cleaning, washing dishes, laundry, and of course, passing out treats and toys.

Caretaker shifts are between 9:00am - 12:00pm daily.

Adoption Hosts

Adoption Hosts truly bring pets and people together! By becoming an Adoption Host, you get to work with people to help find the perfect adoption match. Hosts will:

  • Greet visitors

  • Answer basic questions about animals

  • Show animals to potential adopters

Adoption Host shifts are 12:00pm - 2:30pm and 2:30pm - 5:00pm daily.

Dog Walking

Saving Grace volunteers take our dogs out for strolls around the property throughout the day. Volunteers are asked to commit to one scheduled shift per week and must attend a training session prior to volunteering.


Do you have a talent for photography or want to develop your skills? Photographers are needed to take pictures of our adoptable animals to post on our website. A little bit of your time can help an animal get noticed – and get adopted!

Off-Site Adoption Event Volunteers

We need volunteers to help with adoption and fundraising events held throughout town. This sometimes involves picking animals up from the shelter and taking them to the location, setting up tables, holding or walking the animals while introducing them to potential adopters, and bringing the animals back to the shelter at the end of the event.


The shelter has several acres of grounds and buildings where there is always something that needs to be done - gardening, minor building repairs, painting, cleaning up, etc. Your “handy” skills are needed somewhere at Saving Grace!

Other opportunities may be available! Email volunteer@savinggrace.info for more information!
