9 Lives Rescue


Much like we rely on fosters to house and socialize our animals, we rely on volunteers to support our organization. From transporting animals to vet appointments, helping at adoption events, administrative work, fundraising, building cat shelters and just about everything in between, volunteers help support 9 Lives Rescue's mission to find homes for our animals.

Angels Wish Cat Rescue


Volunteering with animals is fun, but there is real work to do! Most kids work at weekend adoption events with our cats available for adoption. If you don’t want to clean litter boxes, help clean cages, sweep floors, do laundry, or any of the other work that helps keep our pets healthy and comfortable, then volunteering with us isn’t for you. Our cats and kittens are socialized during the week with their foster homes and we limit volunteer contact with our cats to minimize the risk of spreading disease. Youth volunteers must be 12-17 years old.

HAWS Schallock Center for Animals


There are many different ways you can support HAWS! Some opportunities involve direct interaction with the animals at the shelter, while others support the shelter from home. Check out the different options, and see which might be a fit for you.

Occupaws Guide Dog Association


Since OccuPaws is a volunteer-driven association, we are always in need of people’s time, knowledge, and experience! Some ways of helping us are obvious, such as raising a puppy or serving on the Board of Directors, but we need many different skills: – YOU DO NOT NEED TO ATTEND PUPPY TRAINING CLASSES TO BECOME A NON-RAISER VOLUNTEER.
