Volunteers Desperately Needed!

Stray HeartsMuch can be done to better the life of the animals we shelter with the generous help of regular volunteers. There are currently over 100 dogs in the shelter.

Dog Walkers

It’s as simple as putting one foot in front of the other. Walking a dog is not just for physical exercise, but essential to the well- being of its mental health. Stray Hearts is dependent upon its volunteer team of Dog Walkers to ensure that all our animals have human contact, physical exercise, and mental stimulation on a regular basis. Dog walking will provide you with a very flexible opportunity to help the dogs and yourself! Beginner Dog Walker training is provided to all dog walkers, and Advanced Dog Walking training is offered as well.

Cat Socialization

Obviously, cats do not need walking – however, for a cat to stay healthy and adoptable, it needs human interaction. As cats can be aloof, it is important that they are comfortable with human contact. By spending time with the cats and kittens, you will be instrumental in helping them get a forever home. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved your child involved, as well.
