Every shelter should strive to successfully incorporate its volunteers into the organization’s work, treating them as the vitally important partners that they are. Not all shelters are quite there yet—there’s sometimes a disconnect between the lofty ideal and the volunteers’ day-to-day experiences. But shelters can still recruit and train volunteers, giving them an honest idea of what to expect, and working to create a welcoming culture.
