Group Tours and Volunteering

Groups Volunteering and Touring

UPAWS often gets requests from groups looking to volunteer. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate groups due to the nature of our work and the very small and confined physical space at our shelter. For safety reasons, working with the shelter pets requires specialized training and is therefore not available for group volunteer initiatives. If you would like to become an individual member of the volunteer program, please review our volunteer informational link.

However, groups can be supportive of the animals by making toys, fleece blankets and collecting and donating items from our “wish list”. These items are always needed and appreciated. After your wish list drive a representative and up to three others from your group are welcome to bring the items to UPAWS. We’ll have a brief tour and a photo opportunity. To inquire, contact volunteer@upaws.org.
