Volunteer & Foster

We are always looking for new volunteers to help with our daily tasks as well as special events. 

Volunteer Application Form


Submitting the form does not guarantee you a volunteer position. The shelter reserves the right to review all applications received.

Volunteer Your Time

Shelters are often in need of volunteers to walk dogs, bathe and groom animals and play with the cats. These animals are in a strange environment that is often loud and confusing. To get out and have a walk around the yard is a great treat. Some animals come in off the street and are dirty. A bath and some brushing could make them more presentable to a potential adopter. A few moments with a kind human could make an animal feel more loved and appreciated during this difficult time. Please contact us to see if you can give an animal a well-deserved hand. You must be at least 18 years old to volunteer. 

We also need volunteers for our fundraiser events.

Foster an Animal

This program allows foster parents to house a dog or cat in their home until an adoptive family can be found. Many of the cats and dogs in shelters are unable to handle the pressure of the shelter environment. These animals are in need of a nice, quiet environment where they can feel wanted and loved. If you feel that you can provide a foster home and are willing to go through a shelter orientation and training program, please contact Kenton County Animal Services for further information.
