Share Our Shelter!

By sharing BVAS on social media you can help raise awareness of the plight of dogs and cats in NWA. We are dedicated to helping all animals but that means we need you!

Physically Volunteer

The more shelter volunteers, the better, as more care and love can be given to each animal. Walking dogs, for instance, helps get rid of pent-up frustration and helps them be more apt to be adopted out.  Our volunteer hours are from 10-4 Monday through Saturday.  So fill out an application or give us a call.
