Volunteer Profile Online 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 Volunteer Profile form. 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 of our facility.  If we cannot use your generous gift of time, your application will remain on file for one 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, once a week if you are interested in our Dog Walking program. If you are unable to do it at this time, please refrain from filling out the Volunteer Profile and come again when you can meet the minimum commitment. Once we receive your application, you will be contacted within 4-6 weeks. Please note that if you submit an application, you will be contacted via email.

*If you are between the ages of 13-15, you must volunteer with a parent. Parents, please submit an application along with your child's.

Please add volunteer.las@gmail.com and lynn@lakelandanimalshelter.org to your email address book to make sure the email to you doesn't go into your spam box!

*If you're looking for school or court ordered community service, you'd need to apply for our Community Service Program. You can come to the shelter and submit an application, or you can email lynn@lakelandanimalshelter.org and request a form.
