The shelter always welcomes volunteers…

The City of Orange Cove is very fortunate to have generous and caring volunteers who devote several hours a month to the welfare of all the animals in the animal shelter; they clean, walk dogs, groom animals, and more.  This team of volunteers work very hard, but we are always looking for more volunteers willing to help out!  If you are interested in volunteering at the animal shelter please contact Bertha at 559-393-7034 for more information.

If you are interested in ADOPTING one of our many loveable dogs and/or are interested in low cost spay/neuter programs please Contact Jolie at 559-201-6212.
