Converse Animal Shelter Inc. is a non-profit animal welfare group dedicated to making life better for animals in need in the area. They offer people a way to find a new best friend while saving a life. They also provide opportunities and community support events that advance responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of pets.
Interested parties who wish to make a difference in the lives of the companion animals under the group’s care may do so by volunteering. Some opportunities they offer include:
- Administrative Support: Answer phones, enter data, do filing, snap photos or handle other tasks
– Repairs & Maintenance: Fix problems with the building or the kennels
- Socializing Cats: Groom, pet and play with them – make them purr
- Dog Training: Teach dogs to walk calmly or sit and shake paws so they’ll be more adoptable
- Dog Walking: Make your exercise routine more exciting. Come walk our dogs and you’ll both reap the health benefits
- Bathing and Grooming: Be prepared to get wet and have fun!
- Special Events: Bake sweets, help sell donated goods, make holiday stockings or assist with adoption events
