Dog on Leash

There are many ways you can help us serve our mission as an animal welfare organization. Whether an hour a month, or an hour a day, your time and life experience is priceless to the animals of Cherokee County; and to us.

Dog Walking

Come walk Summit's Sanctuary dogs  and enjoy some canine companionship. Our dogs so appreciate getting out of their kennels and runs for a little while and some quality one-on-one time and attention. If you would like a little exercise with a canine friend, please consider becoming a volunteer dog walker at Summit's Sanctuary

Building and Ground Maintenance

The Summit's Sanctuary is in need of a building maintenance person. If you have experience in the building industry and/or as a carpenter and have some time to volunteer at Summit's Sanctuary, we would greatly appreciate your help with the routine maintenance of the shelter.

Assist with Fundraising

We are always looking for volunteers to help organize and assist at fundraising events. If you would like to work with us on fundraising events to help raise money for the shelter, we welcome your participation!

Cleaning the Shelters

We can always use help caring for the animals at the shelter. We need people to help us feed the animals, do the mounds of laundry that develop each day, clean the cat cages, clean the dog runs, and do general cleaning of the shelter. If you are interested in helping us care for the animals and keep the shelter clean, please apply to volunteer today.

Administrative Work

Do you want to put your computer and excel skills to work? If so, we need you! Please fill out a volunteer application, and we will contact you to discuss the shelter’s needs in more detail.
