The T. Russell Reitz Regional Animal Shelter welcomes volunteers. For more information, contact the Animal Shelter at 785-587-2783 or email us.

Cat volunteers will work with cats to socialize and play with them as well as helping the public view and visit with cats. Cat volunteers will be asked to spend a majority of their time in our new cat facility. Dog volunteers will work to teach our dogs some basic manners before entering a home, give them daily exercise, and help the public view and visit with available dogs. .

Your application must be submitted, background check must be completed and fees must be paid prior to attending. Animal Shelter volunteers must be 18 years old and have no animal cruelty convictions. Please complete this Volunteer Application and Background Check
