Community Service

Court Ordered Community Service

Court ordered community service workers assist our Animal Care Department with maintenance tasks, janitorial tasks, kennel cleaning and other miscellaneous tasks. Positions and tasks are separate from other volunteer positions listed on our website, and workers do not work directly with the animals.

Shifts run from 8am to 6pm seven days a week, except the 4 holiday closures on New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

If you would like to fulfill your court ordered community service work at the shelter, please print and fill out our Application for Community Service Placement  and return it to the shelter. Space is limited to three community service workers per day.


School/College Sponsored Community Service

If you are at least 14 years old and need to complete community service for school or college, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 307-632-6655 ext. 27. Space is limited to three Community Service workers per day.

For more information, please read about other ways for youth to help the animals in our care.
