Volunteer Overview

Without volunteers, Animal Aid would not exist. That’s why we’re always in need of dedicated volunteers to help care for the animals during their stay at the shelter. If you love animals and can spare as little as one morning or evening per week, our animals need you!

On-site volunteers, supervised by a staff person or experienced volunteer, provide food, water, brushing, love, and attention to our animals and assist with cleaning kennels, washing dishes and laundry, and changing litter boxes and bedding. And don’t forget that the human rooms need regular maintenance as well!

Off-site volunteers earn money to support our programs. One of the most exciting ways is to sign up for a shift with one of our agility ring crews. We support local canine agility clubs several weekends each year in exchange for a nice donation in support of the Animal Aid Cares Fund.

We also need help in the office, including reception, event planning, marketing, finance, and more.
