Interested in making a difference in your community?


Here at the Stafford County Animal Shelter we are always in need of new volunteers. Let us start off by saying, there are many benefits to volunteering your time. One, you are being apart of the solution. Your helping by making jobs a little easier for everyone by lending a helping hand. Secondly, you’ll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you’ve comforted. Thirdly, did anyone ever tell you the best things in life are free? At the end of the day you get to enjoy a wagging tail, a soft purr and of course a smile.


Did we catch your attention yet? We sure hope so because we still need you! For more information or to volunteer, please contact the Citizen Assistance Office at (540)658-4516. Just simply fill out a volunteer packet with the Citizen Assistance Office to begin. You have to be 16 years or older to volunteer and a background check is necessary.
