Helping Paws volunteer orientation events set

WOODSTOCK – Helping Paws welcomes new volunteers and holds orientation programs on the first Sunday and the third Tuesday of each month at the shelter, 2500 Harding Lane.

In May, orientation programs will be May 5 and May 21.

The nonprofit group needs volunteers to clean the shelter; walk the dogs; wash and fold towels and blankets; wash cat dishes, water bowls and litter pans; and help with fundraisers, such as the group’s garage sale, Paws in the Park and Panting for Paws.

Potential volunteers can find the volunteer forms and waivers at www.helpingpaws.net or they can complete them at the orientation.
