Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Five Acres Animal Shelter!   Volunteering with the cats and dogs in our care is a lot of fun, can be a lot of work, and the benefits are immeasurable!  Please remember that volunteering at Five Acres is very hands on, and at times can get dirty, so if you choose to volunteer with us, please come ready to dive in!  We appreciate all of our volunteers who help our Team Members with day to day tasks!  The dogs and cats at Five Acres will show you their love and appreciation every day that you spend with them – join us for the adventure!
