  3. Be punctual and reliable.
  4. Be an “ambassador” for the shelter.

Becoming a Saint Frances Volunteer:

Volunteers are a vital part of Saint Frances Animal Center.


Volunteer assignments range from comforting and caring for the animals as dog handlers and cat care volunteers, to fund raising.


For those who think working directly with the animals may be too emotionally demanding, we have several areas where volunteers may work away from the shelter by helping with Off-Site Adoptions, and special events.

Volunteers should enjoy working with all types of people and must show a genuine concern for the welfare of animals.

A willingness to work hard, get dirty, and pitch in wherever needed is required.

The majority of Saint Frances volunteers are over sixteen years of age and able to work without parental supervision.

A liability release must be signed by all staff and volunteers or parents of volunteers.

Our volunteer coordinator will assign jobs to unscheduled volunteers. SFAC is 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization serving Georgetown County.

Foster Homes:

When an animal arrives at SFAC who is not quite ready for adoption, SFAC relies on the love and homes of our foster care volunteers.

These volunteers open their homes to kittens needing time to grow, pregnant or nursing cats, dogs who need a little extra attention, or a companion animal recovering from an illness or injury.

Many foster families assist with finding new homes for their fosterling. Those animals are included on this website’s pet list. For more information contact the shelter 843-546-0780 ext 25
