Court-Ordered Community Service

DeKalb Animal Shelter is able to accommodate those seeking to fulfill court-ordered community service. 

Community service volunteers are not permitted to work directly with the animals. However, the duties that they perform support the animals by keeping our facility and equipment clean. Community service workers provide an invaluable service to the shelter and keep us running more efficiently. 


Please contact the shelter for further guidelines.
