Want a summer activity to do as a family? Looking to get volunteer hours? Want to help animals get adopted?

Come volunteer with Poweshiek Animal League Shelter!.

In our cat room daily tasks include scooping litter boxes, filling up food/water bowls, sweeping, laundry, doing dishes and of course snuggling cats. The cat room is great for families, there is a job for all ages.

Dog room volunteers can choose to be hands on with the dogs, which includes taking them out for walks, playing fetch, and socializing with them. Hands off tasks include cleaning/disinfecting kennels, feeding/watering and laundry.

Animal care shifts are normally 7 to 9 AM and 4 to 6 PM. These can be flexible, especially for the cat room. Must be 16 or older to volunteer without parental supervision.

Volunteer forms can be found on our website at, send us a Facebook message or stop out during open hours.

PALS is open Wednesday-Friday 1-6 PM and Saturday 10 AM - 2 PM.
