Volunteer at AWA
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Animal Welfare Association! We are proud to have the support of so many wonderful volunteers. These dedicated people put their concern for animal welfare into action by donating their time, talents and energy.
Our volunteers help in three main program areas of the organization. Volunteers assist on-site in our pet shelter and clinic, within our community through outreach programs and special events, and by becoming a foster parent.
On-site volunteers assist in both animal handling and clerical roles. Tasks range from helping in our laundry room, answering phones, making enrichment toys, sorting donations, walking our dogs, cuddling with our cats and nurturing our bunnies. To ensure that the volunteer experience is a safe and enjoyable experience for all, our program has different training levels.
*Any student wishing to fulfill a time requirement solely for service hours or an honor society should not apply to be a volunteer. Please submit a “High School Service Week ” application instead.
*Court ordered community service volunteers are not tracked through our general volunteer program so all inquiries should be directed to our Shelter Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
