Currently our volunteer program has two basic elements. The first is to assist in our office with answering telephones, helping the public in their needs and some basic filing/clerical work. The second is what we have referred to as our special events. This is the part of going out to the community at various functions and providing educational information. Additionally, we have a “Friends” organization, which is currently working to raise funds to assist the City in building a new City Animal Shelter. They will be doing various fund raising events through out the up coming year.
If you are interested in volunteering at the Shelter. Please contact Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter at www.palmspringsanimalfriends.org.
Please call the shelter at 760-416-5718 during normal business hours to drop off your donations. The shelter is always looking for towels and blankets to assist our pets. You can always drop off dog and cat food, treats and toys. We do ask that the toys be made of a solid material so our pets can enjoy them and not shred them easily. If you wish to make a financial donation, please stop by the shelter or see "Friends of the Palm SPrings Shelter" web site by clicking below.
The City has a dog park for the enjoyment of our four legged K-9 friends. The park is separated for large dogs and small dogs. The park is located behind City Hall between El Cielo and Civic. Please click on the link below for additional information and photographs.
