Volunteer Agreement

Thank you for considering the Jackson County Regional Animal Shelter as a place to volunteer your time!  Our volunteers make it possible to provide quality care to thousands of animals each year.  Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and be willing to volunteer at least 4 hours each month.  You can fill out our online Volunteer Application and complete the Volunteer agreement  to get started.  Below are a few of the many volunteer opportunities available:

  • Dog Walkers
  • Feline Care
  • Canine Care
  • Greeter/Receptionist
  • Photographer
  • Events
  • Matchmaker (introducing adopters to adoptable pets)
  • Marketing (for events, specials, and our retail store)
  • Grounds Maintenance
  • Housekeeping (laundry, windows, etc)

Do you have a special skill that you want to share to help our shelter pets?  Send us an email at sheltervolunteer@indepmo.org and let us know how you can help!
