Volunteers donate precious time, skills, and expertise. You don’t need to be a trained professional to help - the desire to make a difference is all you need.


Please keep in mind that although we are an animal center all of our animals are in foster homes until the facility is complete.  Hands on volunteer opportunities with animals also include working with the public.  Please read the volunteer descriptions and learn how to get started below! 

Current Needs


Animal Care /Customer Service -  Volunteer at our adoption center on Saturday.  We will have animals on-site.  Your job will be to talk with potential adopters.  This opportunity is with animals, but is very customer service based.  You must be 16 years or older and have attended adoption center training. 

Foster Homes -  We have an urgent need for foster homes.   We know new foster families have a ton of questions and concerns!  Please email foster@mistyeyes.org for information.

Humane Educators  - Are you comfortable presenting to groups?  We are seeking people who would like to present to adults and children.  We do require a background check for this opportunity.

Community Outreach  - This team helps raise awareness and attends community events.  There is a little something for everyone.  

Impact Team  - This new team travels to areas that need a bit of extra help.  We set up and teach humane education and kindness towards all living things in a fun and interactive way.  

Fundraising Team - This team raises funds that support our animal care program and building fund.  From letter writing to meetings, there is something for everyone.

Reception Volunteers - Volunteer at our reception desk.  Light cleaning tasks assigned.
