Community Service Hours

There are several ways to help out our animals and get community service hour credit.  The shelter will gladly sign off on hours for any of the following projects:

  • Homemade Pet Treats (provide a list of all ingredients)

  • Toy, towel or blanket drives

  • Virtual Adoption/Education Events

  • Landscaping/Beautification Projects

  • Homemade Feral Cat Shelters

  • Homemade Cat Toys


Our volunteers contribute to the over-all well being of our furry friends and help them become adoptable quicker. When dogs get out of the kennel daily for walks, playtime and TLC it reduces stress and meets their species specific needs. Our kitties benefit from socialization which includes interactive enrichment activities, grooming and lots of petting!

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer please call (631) 360-7575 and we'll put you on the list for our next Volunteer Orientation Meeting. *Please note all volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or older.
