Thank you or your interest in joining the Lone Pine Volunteer Team!
The best first step we have found is to come and get acquainted with us. You can come to the shelter (open from 10am to 1pm most Saturdays), or you can stop by one of our adoption events.
Here are some of the opportunities we have for you to help with:
You don't have to have alot of experience working with animals to help both us and our rescue pets out. Just have a big heart, and alot of patience. Sometimes the volunteer interaction that a rescue pet gets can be the difference between a successful adoption and a return. Many of the pets that we get have been abandoned, neglected, or in some cases, mistreated. Learning that humans can be fun, and can represent love is critical to that rescue pet being open to a new family.
There are always senior volunteers "on duty" with rotating volunteers, so you don't have to worry about being put into a situation where you wouldn't know the answer, or you are uncomfortable. We try to provide a relaxed, fun environment for both our volunteers and our pets.
We do work with some of the bigger corporations in Northwest Arkansas, who will match their employees volunteer time with a monetary donation. This is a double bonus for us, and we would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
If this sounds like something that you might be interested in, please take a minute and fill out our Volunteer Form. One of our volunteer coordinators will be in touch with you using the method you recommend on your form.
