Note that many shelters want to protect the privacy for the people they serve. Many have age restrictions for volunteers. Many don’t need hands-on volunteer work, but need donations, help spreading the word, your talents remotely, or something else. Be open to creative ways of helping out, and let them know that.
Step outside of your comfort-zone, and do it! Let us know how it goes!
