Join the On The Road Adoption Team who take adoptable animals to off-site locations in order to encourage adoptions and increase community awareness of FHS. These events generally occur on weekends.

“Terrific Transporters” –

Many animals need transportation to a local vet, or even further afield to their new rescue home. Can you give them a lift?

“Wellness Hour”

Working the front desk from 12:30-1:30 on Tuesdays and/or Fridays! Answer phone calls, questions, interact with walk-ins etc. This hour allows the staff to work and train some of the dogs.

Pet Fix Program

Morning Helper

A volunteer is needed every morning to wash food bowls, litter pans, laundry, stock cupboards; thus allowing staff to concentrate on kennel and cage cleaning.

Daily General Helper

Do you have a few hours one day of the week (or once every 2 weeks) to come to the shelter and help out in any way that we need you?
