OMHS is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization, and the volunteers for OMHS are a wonderful dedicated and reliable bunch of folks!

Volunteer opportunities available right meow:

  • Adoption Center: Volunteer to socialize with the beautiful cats and kittens waiting for new homes, help clean litter boxes, and feed and water the animals. If you are able to donate an hour or two per week or every other week, please email our shelter manager and ask what volunteer shifts are open at this time.  We ask that any children under 18 years of age be accompanied by an adult when working. OMHS has a volunteer application form to be completed. 

  • Foster Homes for Dogs or Cats: Volunteer to open your home and heart to give a foster home to a dog or cat waiting for adoption. Dogs and cats learn healthy behaviors and thrive in foster homes surrounded by the activities of daily family life.


Volunteer at OMHS annual events:

  • Animal House Food Stand: Volunteer to work a 2 hour or longer shift at this seasonal fund-raising project. The little mobile food stand serves great sandwiches once per month from April through October. New volunteers are welcome to join the fun. Please email us for more information. This is our greatest volunteer need!

  • Howl and Meow… Held on a Saturday in April, the event features a Dog Walk, the selection of the dog mascot and the cat mascot for the year, a quarter raffle, the Grand and Glorious food stand, a Perennial and Annual Plant Sale, photo contest, and a Doggy Showcase where dogs strut their stuff just for the fun of it!

  • Rummage Romp for Pets… Held in mid-summer, this is a colossal and clean sale with collectibles, antiques, household, clothing, books, electronics, and a world of other items. Donate items for the sale and/or help crew the sale! Support OMHS Rummage Romp to provide funds for Pet Care!

  • Paws Fur the Holidays… Held the second Saturday of November, this event features a Sweet Walk, a pie sale, Pet Portraits, the Grand and Glorious Food Stand, a  Silent Auction of quality items and pet related items, and a featured speaker focusing on a special animal topic.
