Default I volunteer part time in a dog pound, a very poor dog pound, and just found out today

Most lice tends to be species specific so you are fairly lucky there but other conditions such as ringworm could be carried home. It is best for you to practice really good hygiene between the shelter and home. Have special clothes just for when you volunteer and changed them before you come home. Wash your hands regularly and you should likely be fine. I would watch your cat's general attitude, appetite, and habits. Any changes in their skin, any lethargy, decreased appetite, vomiting/diarrhea, etc. I would contact your veterinarian. Keep up the good work at the shelter - I know it makes a difference!
