Any glimpse into the life of an
animal quickens our own and
makes it so much the larger
and better in every way.

KCHA is always in need of compassionate people ready to make a difference in the lives of our shelter pets.  Help meet our physical needs by orchestrating a donation drive – check out our wishlist for our most used items and preferred brands of food!

We’re looking for motivated, reliable volunteers we can depend on!  We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available, and we’re open to more ways YOU can help. We appreciate extra sets of hands in the morning to help clean, and it's impossible not enjoy seeing our pets light up with enrichment activities in the afternoon! 

Areas we need volunteers the most:

  • Playgroups - monitoring our bouncy dogs as they stretch their legs and PLAY!
  • Cattery - summertime and the kitties are a-plenty! Assisting our staff cleaning, refilling food & water, and keeping the kitties happy are a big, BIG help!
  • Kitten nursery - helping care for our ophan kittens and nursing moms
  • Photography - photographing our pets helps show their true personalities to the world!
