Imperial County Animal Care and Control relies on volunteer support from the community to provide additional public service and animal care programs that are vital to a healthy community. We are currently in need of committed volunteers. If you have a love for animals and have a minimum of eight hours a month to donate your time, please consider becoming a volunteer at our facility.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age at the beginning of service (no exceptions). If a volunteer is a minor (16-17), parental permission and approval by the Public Health Director is required. Volunteers are representatives of the Imperial County’s Animal Care and Control program. There are guidelines that must be followed in order to maintain the standards of the shelter and to provide you with an enjoyable and fulfilling volunteer experience.
