The Almost Home Animal Shelter in Dickinson County is ramping up its volunteer programs.
The shelter is hoping to get more volunteers in this year and is offering specific training.
Many shelters need the help of volunteers to care for the animals and keep the facility clean. At the shelter in Quinnesec, they offer various volunteer orientations and training sessions. They're always looking for volunteers no matter what type of service you can offer.
"We also have a couple of individuals that help with our janitorial maintenance," said Adrien Brzoznowski, shelter director. "As you can imagine with a big facility like this, we need those people as well, but also we need people to help us with adoption programs and events, our special events."
