Volunteer Profile Form

Caring for the neglected, unwanted, stray, abused and homeless animals of Walworth County.

The Lakeland Animal Shelter is currently accepting applications to become a volunteer. Volunteers are a very important part of our team. We look forward to potentially matching you with an opportunity that is both helpful and rewarding. All potential volunteers must submit a completed application. You will be contacted when and if there is an open position, and we will then schedule a tour.

Due to the size of our shelter, we appreciate, but cannot accommodate all volunteers. Our volunteers are considered an elite group of fine individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. If there is an opening for the position you are applying for within the hours you are available, you will then be contacted about a tour. If we cannot use your generous gift of time, your application will remain on file for 1 year.

Please remember you are being asked to make a 6 month commitment, and you will be required to volunteer at least 2 times a month. If you are unable to do it at this time, please refrain from filling out this application and come again when you can meet the minimum commitment. Once we receive your application you will be contacted within 2 – 4 weeks.
