Volunteer Opportunities

The Idaho Falls Animal Shelter and Animal Services are always looking for extra volunteers. We often need help with cleaning cages, keeping track of Community Cats, and socializing the animals at the shelter. 

We are really looking for people to volunteer on an ongoing basis only!

We prefer volunteers who can work with us on a repeated basis, as much of this job involves training and supervision. If you are a person over the age of 18, who can volunteer their time on an ongoing basis, loves animals, and can work hard, we would love to have you join us!

What to Do Before You Volunteer

Before volunteers can work with an animal alone (Ex. walking dogs, socializing, etc) they must first complete the Volunteer Training Tasks Checklist. This checklist should take around 5 hours to complete, and can be completed over multiple days. We are also looking for volunteers that are 18 years or older. 

If you want to volunteer, please click here to fill out the online form.

Animal Control will then reach out to you, and set up times to volunteer. If you have not completed the Volunteer Training Tasks Checklist, then those will be your first duties.

If you have any questions, please contact the Animal Shelter directly.
