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.
Current Needs at PAWS
During the summer months PAWS is especially in need of more volunteers to help at the shelter. If you are available during any of the following shifts, please let the scheduler know when you sign up for volunteer training.
- Dog Side: Monday night, Friday morning, Sunday night, and Sunday morning
- Cat Side: Tuesday morning, Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night
- Front Desk: Monday night, Tuesday day, Saturday day, Sunday day
