 By becoming a foster caregiver to our shelter animals you get the chance to spend quality time with some tiny kittens, teach a dog how to love and be loved, assist an injured cat or dog to get back on their feet, or lend a loving hand to animals recuperating after surgery. Fostering is an immensely rewarding experience, for the pet, and     you, and it saves animals lives in a very direct way.   

Training is required to become a foster caregiver. If you would like to become someone who fosters our shelter animals, please contact our Volunteer Outreach Coordinator, Colleen Yarbrough, 352-746-8408 

Microchip your pet! A tiny implantation under your pet’s skin (about the size of a grain of rice) can help you locate your pet and save their life! This implantation does not track their location, but rather holds your contact information so you can be contacted once your pet is found. It can also facilitate your proof of ownership. This tiny, inexpensive device has reunited thousands of pets with their owners. These can be obtained through a veterinarian’s office, the Citrus County Animal Services shelter, The Humanitarians of Florida or through community events at a discounted price. Check back soon for our summer special for microchipping that we will be having for Citrus County resident pets!!!

Do Something Wonderful, Volunteer at the

Citrus County Animal Shelter! 

Here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering:

1. Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of thousands of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership and animal protection.

2. Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you've comforted.

3. Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.

4. Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.

5. Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service. 

6. Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?
