March 11 at 1pm at the Police Station is the first meeting about volunteering at the Animal Shelter.
The Mountainair Animal Shelter is nearing completion and will soon be housing dogs, with cats soon to follow. Animals are more adoptable if they are socialized to different humans and to other pets, and thus we are looking for people who will volunteer to interact with the animals each week for a few hours. If you volunteer, you may be asked to hold and pet the animals, to walk the dogs, to feed the animals and…..yes…. to clean up after them! Everyone will have training and the supervision / assistance of Walter, our Animal Control Officer and Robert, our Chief of Police to make the experience safe and enjoyable
