Click on the video below to see some Five Acres Animal Shelter Volunteers in action working with cats and dogs! This short video is like a highlight reel of volunteering! Actual volunteering with cats and dogs can be much more involved, and lots of work, and the benefits are immeasurable! Please remember that volunteering at Five Acres is very hands on, and at times, hard work, so of 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, and the dogs and cats in our care will show you their love and appreciation as well!
We are now accepting new volunteers at Five Acres Animal Shelter- in the Canine Clubhouse, Kitty Cottage and at the Randolph location. At this time, we are accepting new volunteers at a somewhat paced manner, as we are still working within some confines of Covid-19. Please click on the Volunteer Application to read about our needs and whether you would be a good fit for Five Acres and if Five Acres would be a good fit for you! Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Five Acres!
Please complete the Foster Application if you would like to open your home and heart to pets as they prepare for adoption! Please be sure to read through the information about our Foster program, including the list of FAQs!

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Five Acres Animal Shelter! Because of the time and specific training that is required to work with the animals, we are unable to accommodate groups who are interested in working directly with the animals.
