How YOU Can Make a Difference for NAMC's Animals

Donate Financially.

Donate Your Time - Volunteer! The shelter is always seeking animal-lovers to give a few hours of their time to help in a variety of ways: socializing the dogs and cats, assisting potential adopters in meeting the animals, helping clean cages, handling animals at off-site adoption opportunities. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old (parental waiver is required for those under age 18), and a one-hour orientation session must be attended prior to volunteering. Follow-up training classes are held periodically. Interested? Please contact Karen for more information, or complete a volunteer application now and bring it to Twanesha Murray at the shelter.

Purina Dog/Puppy Chow Purina Cat/Kittten Chow Authority (PetsMart brand) canned kitten food
