Welcome and THANK YOU for choosing to volunteer with the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. Our community and its animals rely heavily upon volunteers. Our shelter’s mission could not succeed without them, without you!

We have automated onboarding through Better Impact, our online volunteer software. It’s a great way to get you started quickly and empowers you to move through the volunteer program at your own pace. I know it’s a little weird doing all this computer stuff first, but this way helps you get your paperwork and orientation completed so you can focus on what you do best… caring for animals in need!

Create your Better Impact account in a few easy steps and bookmark that page. If we’re lucky, you’ll be using the link often. Volunteer orientation consists of an online video orientation and then an orientation tour, either in person, virtual or both. The virtual option will get you volunteering much more quickly.

Thank you for joining our shelter family!
