After 15 months, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society is relaunching its volunteer program to help further its commitment to supporting animals, saving lives and spreading compassion.  

The shelter halted the program during the pandemic to reduce the number of people at the shelter. The staff has been working double duty as dog walkers, cat socializers and more to fulfill the duties that were left vacant by volunteers.
