We need volunteers to help with adoption fairs every Saturday and Sunday. This would involve picking animals up from the shelter and taking them to the Petsmart location, holding the animals during the fair while assisting with the adoption process, and bringing the animals back to the shelter at the end of the day. Volunteers are needed for any or all of these parts of the fair. (This is a great parent-child activity).
