Volunteer Management

shelter_volunteerVolunteers are an important piece of the staffing puzzle for any size organization. For smaller groups, you may be dependent on volunteers to carry out the daily operations of your organization, for larger groups they may add the “icing on the cake” for the services you are able to provide your animals and community, and for groups somewhere between small or large volunteers may equal contributions as paid staff. Wherever your shelter falls, the mark of a great volunteer program can be measured by its infrastructure. The resources presented below will assist you in all things related to volunteer management: developing a program, tracking statistics, recruitment and retention, and training.


These documents are written for a variety of shelter personnel including those new to the field or those with many years of experience, as well as frontline animal care staff, volunteers and all the way up to administrative staff.
