For those who want to help animals, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities at Amarillo Animal Management &Welfare.
Volunteers can choose from many different options, including front desk greeter; house-keeping (dishes, laundry, etc.); dog play group assessments; food bank (breaking down and fill individual bags of dog and cat food); cat room assistance (clean cages, freshen up bedding, cat litter box, food, water) and assistance with meet and greets.
In addition, there is also adoption support (paperwork, meet and greets, adoption folder kits and assembling); special events (school program presentations, event booths); animal photography (assisting and holding animals for photos being taken); dog walker; data entry/office support (filing, organizing paperwork) and grooming (assisting with baths before surgery or when needed.)
Information on volunteer opportunities will also be available at the AAMW Open House, scheduled for May 4 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Additional AAMW Open Houses are set for May 25, June 8 and June 22.
