Volunteering is critical to the work we do serving the animals that come to Bentonville Animal Services.

Together, staff and volunteers ensure that animals in our care get exercise, mental stimulation, love and companionship. Below are ways are volunteers have been involved so far: 

  • Dog walking

  • Cat socialization

  • Events (Yappy Hours, First Fridays, Adoption Events)

  • Adoption assistance

  • Pet photography & writing for pet bios.

  • Special projects

We want every animal brought to us to have a chance for a long and happy life. Shelters can be stressful places for certain pets. Foster homes can provide a less stressful housing option that can often speed recovery, minimize behavior issues, and increase chances of adoption. 

Below are some of the animals we occasionally will have at our shelter:

  • Bottle Babies (0-8 weeks)

  • Puppies & Kittens (8 weeks-4 months)

  • Nursing Moms with Babies

  • Healthy Adult Dogs & Cats (4+ months)

  • Medical Case Dogs & Cats

  • Senior Dogs (7+ years)

  • Senior Cats (10+ years)
