We have many opportunities to volunteer at Pets and People. One way you could help is either in the mornings any time from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or in the afternoons anytime between 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. These are the times when the cages are being cleaned and animals are being fed. We also have many dogs that need to be walked individually due to shyness or ‘does not play well with other’ dogs. Volunteers are welcome every day, including holidays.
Another way would be to make a commitment to ‘mentor’ an individual dog. This helps them to become more sociable, teaching them manners etc., so that they show better when being looked at for possible adoption. We like our mentors to come out if possible, 2 to 3 times a week working with their dogs and giving them individual attention.
Pets and People has a Thrift Store at 322 Elm Ave Yukon, Oklahoma 73099. They need volunteers throughout the week with sorting donations etc. Please call (405) 350-3199 and talk with Tonya!
