Animal Services Volunteer Program

Post Date:06/21/2011

Volunteers are important to provide services that mean so much for the animals in our shelter! We look forward to having your energy and time to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals.

Submit your completed Volunteer Application to Human Resources at City Hall 201 N. Carson St. Carson City, NV 89701. Your application will be reviewed and we will determine if your interest,Dog experience and time availability match our current volunteer needs. If they do, you will be invited to attend the next Volunteer Orientation. If they don’t, you will be informed in writing and your application will be kept on file so that we may contact you at a future date.

A foster home provides a temporary home for an animal from the shelter. The amount of time for the temporary care can vary from a few days to several months. Being a foster home is like being a grandparent—all the enjoyment of caring for an animal without the lifetime responsibility.   However, a foster must be the type of person who can take home a needy animal, care for it and bond with it, and then be able to let it go to another family. For more information on our foster program, please contact Carson City Animal Services (775) 887-2171.

Each foster must complete a Foster Home Application and Foster Home Agreement. An inspection of the foster home will be done by Carson City Animal Services Volunteer Coordinator prior to approval of a foster home.
