Please fill out the application below (it's electronic) and then follow the instructions once the application is submitted. You can also visit us at the Adoption Center to see how you can help. The adoption center is located at 1750 S. Rainbow Blvd # 4, Las Vegas NV 89146. We look forward to meeting you!
We welcome student volunteers from the ages of 8-14 years in the company of a parent or other responsible adult. With a parent's permission, high school students ages 15-17 years may volunteer independently. We are in the process of incorporating additional activities for our younger volunteers including reading to our animals (they love it!).
Please keep in mind that we are an animal rescue and some of our cats and dogs come to us very scared. For this reason, we ask that you check with other staff/volunteers before opening kennels for the safety of yourself and our animals.
Scheduling is completed via SignUpGenius - your name, email and phone number will be used to schedule you in your preferred shift and/or days after orientation.
