During this giving time of year, consider helping out the four-legged in need. There are many adorable, sweet-hearted dogs and cats without a home, craving some love. Adoption can be very beneficial to both the animal and the owner, but even if you aren’t able to adopt, there are still many opportunities to help out at the animal shelter. Anything from helping out at the front desk, to dog walking, to foster care. So come visit Fayetteville Animal Shelter to see what you can do to make a difference.

Adoption:

There is no appointment needed. Just come by and get to know the dogs. Pets can go home the day of if all of the applications go through correctly.

Volunteer Program:

One can become a dog walker by just filling out an application. This is a great way to get some exercise while spending time with dogs. Must be 18 or older.

To Grooming and Bathing Dogs attend the new volunteer orientation to get information and learn how to bathe and groom dogs.

Cat Socialization- nothing better than getting to play with a bunch of kittens!

Adoption Adviser is someone who meets with potential adopters to show available pets. Will need basic understanding training.

To be an advocate one will post pictures of the pets on social media. Being an advocate will give the pets a voice and a better chance of finding them homes.

To be a dog photographer one should sign up to take pictures of the animals to help them get adopted. To apply call or contact by email.

Foster Care/Temporary Care is beneficial to pets who don’t yet have a permanent home, and for the foster parents who may want pets but cannot commit fully.

 

There are many fun ways to get involved in the community and make a difference. There is no better way to feel good about yourself and make an impact, than by helping out our furry friends. Adoption is a great way to add a new member to the family, but there are countless other ways to help out. So come by Fayetteville Animal Services at 1640 S Armstrong Ave. Fayetteville, and see what you can do!
