Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Save-A-Pet. We help and heal an estimated 1000 cats and dogs each year. We couldn’t fulfill our mission without the support and dedication of our volunteers.

Each year, more than 400 volunteers, with a wide variety of backgrounds, donate many hours of service, giving hands-on care to animals, educating our community, providing administrative support, and more. Save-A-Pet volunteers have a deep sense of satisfaction in helping us provide our cats and dogs with a second chance.

We provide the training for all volunteer positions, so no prior experience is required. Whether walking dogs, fostering kittens, or helping to make an event successful, you can be a part of the life-saving work we do.
