Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with AARF. As an almost all-volunteer run organization, we depend on the caring members of the community to achieve the goal of saving animals. Your involvement is a key component to our continuing success. If you are interested in getting involved, simply submit a volunteer application. No matter how much time you have or what skills you possess, we’re positive we can find a spot for you on our team!
If you don’t hear from us within a week, persist. It just means a lot is going on. We would LOVE to meet you and get you started.
The volunteer application has a long list of the many and varied opportunities, but here are a few of the more urgent needs:
AARF house helpers/cleaners
Help with website management (updating calendar, event page updates)
Someone to design event flyers (formal training not necessary but should have design experience)
Cat and dog fostering
Cat adoption counselors
Helpers at AARF during vet checks (early evenings)
Assist with Saturday cat adoption fairs both at the AARF house and off-site locations
All skill levels are welcome. Check out the application below. If you don’t see what you were thinking about, we love new ideas.
“I have been volunteering with AARF since 2013. Holding, cuddling, kissing cats, dogs, kittens and puppies is incredibly gratifying and fun! On the human side, the family of volunteers that have come together with this common bond of caring and helping lost and sick animals is remarkable. You feel part of a greater cause. The icing on the cake is when you help someone find their new family member and you watch them connect. All that hard work turns to pure joy. My life is continuously enriched through volunteering at AARF.”
