Volunteers Needed!


We need the support of our community and volunteers to ensure our cats, dogs and other animals get daily exercise and enrichment. You can help make a difference for homeless pets by relieving some of their shelter stress and showing them love and one-on-one attention. Do you have a few hours a month to give love and kindness to some homeless pets? They sure would appreciate it!

Whether you’re a group looking for a one-time opportunity, a youth group needing service hours, or an individual who wants to commit to regular volunteering, we have a place for you here at Lancaster County Animal Shelter.


Volunteers should be 18 years of age or older. Those under18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian and completely supervised throughout their volunteer service. Please download, print and sign the Shelter Rules form here:
