- #1 SHELTER CLEANING
Cleaning cat cages, doing laundry/dishes, doing yard work, etc.
all make a huge difference in the lives of our precious animals.
The Highland Animal Shelter is a true "no kill" facility. Many of
our residents spend years here before finding their forever home, while
some will live out their natural lives in our loving environment. With
only 2 full-time employees, our shelter operates on a partial volunteer
staff during the work week, and a total volunteer staff on weekends.
- We have wonderful staff & volunteers who can train, assist, and guide you through the tasks
- Each task performed by
volunteers helps us provide the highest standard of living
and sanitary conditions for the animals, and truly makes the difference between it being just a "shelter" and a home!
- #2 FUND RAISING
Animal Shelter operates on Fund Raising and Donations. Dedicated
volunteers work to plan and schedule fund raising events. They network
with family, friends and strangers to gather donations, staff events
and get items to raffle, auction or sell at those events.
- Fundraising activities are the life blood of the shelter and make the standard of living we
have put in place possible.

- #3 PETSMART VOLUNTEERING
lion's share of our cat & kitten adoptions are done through the
Adopt-A-Cat program we participate in at the O'Fallon, IL PetSmart. We
are always seeking volunteers for either morning or evening shifts. The
tasks are minimal: cleaning their cage as needed, replacing beds &
linens, giving fresh food & water, and of course, lots of
love. You may dedicate as little or much of your time as you wish!

cat program, please email Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org
