We are currently seeking volunteers to help with off-site adoption events and fundraising. If you love animals and feel that you have skills that could help us with either of these positions, we are looking for folks who can donate one or two hours a week to help with these activities.
We have a paid dog walker who comes in Monday through Friday, but he can only get so many of them out, and only for a short time. We’d like people (over age 18) who can donate a few hours regularly and that have experience walking big dogs, as many of them are on the larger and stronger side.All volunteers between the ages of 14 – 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent/guardian.
For all positions, Contact:
call 845-361-1861 if interested
A SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS
All of the employees at the shelter work very hard. They help each other out by doing whatever is needed regardless of whether or not it’s a part of the their job. We’d like to take some time to give a special note of THANKS to Debbie Stefanuk. Debbie is a long time and much-respected employee. She takes care to make sure that the Petfinder page is up-to-date, makes the connection with Puppy Pipeline and other rescue groups such as On the Way home, makes trips down to Newark to pick-up rescue animals, and answers or directs the email from Luvyrpets2. All of this in addition to her regular hours at the shelter.
Our Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors is a group of people dedicated to animal welfare. The position is an unpaid one that requires a can-do attitude and enthusiasm. The Board focuses on setting policy, fundraising and overseeing the financial well-being of the shelter.
The most important role that the Board is working on currently is fundraising. Have an idea that you’d like to initiate and volunteer to put into action?
Call the shelter at (845) 361-1861
