Volunteers are the heart and soul of Centre County PAWS. We invite you to complete an online application and join the ranks of volunteers committed to helping homeless and unwanted dogs and cats.
It takes hundreds of volunteer and staff hours to maintain and grow the Center. Volunteers comprise the vast majority of people power at PAWS, since the number of paid staff is limited. It takes numerous volunteers to care for the dogs and cats every morning and evening, while there are dozens more "behind the scenes" volunteers who work on adoption applications, fundraising, scheduling, ongoing medical care, and much more.
Shifts with Greatest Volunteer Needs at PAWS
PAWS has recently teamed up with the Orphaned Kitten Program for adoptions, so now has more kittens in house than ever. We love kittens, but boy are they messy! We can use LOTS of help on the shifts below. In addition, our weekday morning dog shifts remain in need of additional help.
- Dog Side: Saturday PM, Sunday PM
- Cat Side: Monday PM, Thursday PM, Friday AM, Sunday PM
