  • Adoption Center: Volunteer to socialize with the beautiful cats and kittens waiting for new homes, help clean litter boxes, and feed and water the animals. If you are able to donate an hour or two per week or every other week, please call 608-604-3483 and ask what volunteer shifts are open at this time.  We ask that any children under 14 years of age be accompanied by an adult when working. OMHS has a volunteer application form to be completed.
  • Foster Homes for Dogs: (Application Form). Volunteer to open your home and heart to give a foster home to a dog or pup waiting for adoption. Dogs learn healthy behaviors and thrive in foster homes surrounded by the activities of daily family life.
