How do you get started?  Complete the Volunteer Application and let us know what you’re interested in.  Drop off or mail your application at the shelter at 1150 Nelson Parkway, Viroqua, WI.   You can also scan and send to us via email at .

We ask all volunteers to attend an orientation.  Volunteer Orientation is held the first Saturday of each month at 11:00 a.m. at the facility.  If you are under the age of 18 you must attend orientation with a legal guardian/parent. Youth volunteers 16 and older may then volunteer without supervision. Those under 16 must volunteer with their guardian or a responsible adult volunteer partner.

For reference, our volunteer materials are posted here.

The next Orientation will be Saturday, March 4, 2017 at 11:00 a.m.
