The animal shelter is staffed by one-part time and three full-time employees, three animal services officers, and a group of devoted volunteers.
Our volunteers play an important role in caring for the animals. When you volunteer you will have the opportunity to help with bathing, dog walking, general socialization of the animals, assisting in pet adoptions, maintaining a lost-and-found list, and assisting in the shelter office. The staff and volunteers also offer free information on a variety of pet-related matters, including low-cost neuter/spay, behavior problem solving and other pet responsibility issues. Some of our staff and many of our volunteers have adopted the “hard-to-place” dogs and cats.
As a volunteer, your commitment is only four hours, one day each week. Training is available once a month and takes place over a two-hour period. During the two hours you will learn about the facility, staff, and most importantly, the needs of our animals.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter for specific times and dates, and to sign up for the next available training session. Training sessions occur once each month and are subject to change without notice.
