We do not have the need for animal interacting volunteers at the moment. We mostly require volunteers to help with events, such as our Halloween Haunted House, Silent Auction, concerts etc.

They can do so by contact us via email at: pawsitivechanges@hotmail.com to request a volunteer application.

*What types of items do you take as donations?
The items that we need on an almost daily basis are:

Blankets, kennels, leashes, collars, and toys.

 *What is the adoption process like?
Fill out an application, we review the application, we then perform a home check and ask some further questions, then it’s a meet and greet with your potential new family member, if all go well, you will then fill out an adoption agreement where you must provide some personal identification information such as your driver’s licence number. Note: all of the above must be met in order to have your new family member join your home.

*What does your shelter/rescue hope to achieve in 2014?
Our hope for 2014 and many more years to come is to continue to provide animals with a second chance at love, live, happiness and a family.

*Anything else you want to add?
Spay and Neuter!

Don’t shop adopt!

Consider everything that comes with owning a pet (no matter what it is) they all take time, patience and training. If you cannot foresee committing your spare time to an animal for the next 18 years, please re-consider getting that animal.

If you get an animal and are ready to make the commitment, please take the time to socialize and train your animal so that they can be the best that they can be.

Do not support dog fights!
