Volunteering at Forsyth County Animal Shelter

We always need volunteers! Running the shelter takes constant effort, and that doesn’t leave us much time to spend with our pups and kitties. Even if you can’t bring a pet home with you, all of our animals will benefit from extra love and attention.

**Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.**

What You Can Do As a Volunteer

Volunteering can give us major insights into our animal's personalities. We have a much better chance of finding a great home for our adoptable pets when we know as much about them as possible. The best way to do that is through active volunteers. You can help do this in many ways, including:


Walk the dogs

Socialize cats


Clean dog/cat kennels

Outreach events

  • Rabies clinics (paperwork/check in)
  • Enrichment prep
  • Behavior modification (dogs)
  • Office work
  • Grooming
  • Tours
  • Videography
