Welcome to the new City of Lee’s Summit website

We’ve been working on this for a while with our citizens and City staff to design a website to serve your needs. We can’t wait for you to take a look around!

Volunteer Opportunities

Any person interested in volunteering at the Shelter will need to fill out a Volunteer Agreement Form and return it to the Shelter to volunteer on the weekly schedule.  Make sure to review the Volunteer Task List  before your first shift begins.

We have two different types of volunteer opportunities:

Community Service (supervised, for credit hours):

  • Monday through Friday: 8-11 a.m. and 3-5 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday: 8-11 a.m. and 12-2 p.m.

Open Volunteering (unsupervised, no credit hours earned):

  • Monday through Friday: anytime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

If you are interested in volunteering outside of the Shelter, we partner with Heart of America Humane Society for off-site adoption events and fostering.
