Volunteer Application

Our innovative programs and no-kill policy have allowed us to save the lives of thousands of animals, but we really need your help. We thank you for your interest in and dedication to our volunteer program.


Please watch our volunteer orientation video included on this page (or watch it here). Then please check off any or all of the volunteer opportunities listed (check the link for details on all of them). Make sure you include your answers to the three questions in the video in your application.


Someone will contact you promptly about orientation. We promise you will find working with the animals fun and rewarding!
