Our organization depends on dedicated volunteers to help with our many programs.
Working with animals is a very rewarding experience. Whether you have many hours to give or are available only on special occasions, we have an activity you can participate in. Some of our activities require several hours weekly and some a few hours a month. If your schedule is extremely heavy, we even have ways you can help us once or twice a year (for example, fund-raising events). You can work with the animals or on their behalf.
