West Point Animal Shelter Volunteers

This event has been cancelled.


Registration OpensRegistration Opened
Registration ClosesAny time before each end date or when space runs out.

Our Shelter needs help with socializing young kittens and puppies. Exercising and grooming the adult cats and dogs is especially welcomed. Any time spent with a pet here who spends the majority of their day confined is an enrichment period for them. This human contact is vital to their well-being. If you're interested in visiting these pets you may come during our open hours.

Special projects such as grooming days, deep-cleaning specific areas, or landscaping maintenance would sometimes be available for interested volunteers.

The shelter is open from 9-3 Tuesday-Friday, and 9-12 Saturday.

  • *Any group larger than 10 should call and be placed on our calendar*
  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
  • A picture I.D. is required.
  • A volunteer release of liability can be emailed or filled out on site.
  • Nails can scratch and feet can get stepped on. Please wear appropriate clothing such as long pants and closed sturdy shoes. Sandals and flip flops are a hazard!

Interested volunteers can go by the shelter during the hours they are open and completed a volunteer form as well as sign up for future shifts. For additional information, contact the shelter at 662-524-4430 or email them at
