Does Animal Control have a volunteer program? If so, how do I volunteer and what would my duties be?

Animal Control welcomes and appreciates volunteers. To volunteer just pick up an application at Animal Control, fill it out, and we will contact you when your application has been approved. Volunteers are used primarily to socialize the animals. This helps prepare them for adoption and also gives them the attention that is important for any prospective pet.


Volunteers can also walk dogs and assist with adoptions. Volunteers can choose the hours they work between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., 7 days a week. Any time spent volunteering is greatly appreciated.


Pick up an application at:
2910 N Florida Avenue
Alamogordo, NM 88310
