Adopt-A-Pet's volunteers are the engine that keeps Adopt-A-Pet running, and we can always use some extra paws! Dependable, dedicated and enthusiastic team members are needed for a variety of jobs. Use the Volunteer Form below to contact us.
Foster Homes Foster homes provide interim care to dogs and cats until they find their forever home. More Adopt-A-Pet foster homes means more animals we are able to intake & adopt out to loving homes. Foster families temporarily take custody of a dog or cat until a forever home is available, providing them with the attention & care they need in the meantime. Adopt-A-Pet will cover the expenses of fostering to families that have the heart to open up their homes, but not the financial capability.
Transporters Our animals occasionally need to be transported from one location to another, such as a vet clinic to an adoption show. Help when you can; no regular commitment required.
Digital Photographers We need photos taken of our adoptable pets as soon as they're ready to be featured on our website. All you need is a digital camera & an internet connection, as well as the ability to get to places in which our animals are located. Help when you can; no regular commitment required.
Adoption Screeners Return calls to potential adopters, conduct phone interviews, review applications/check references, and coordinate meetings between foster homes & interested adopters. This is a job that can be done from home and only requires you to have a phone and reliable internet connection; however, it can be time-consuming. One-day-a-month commitments are welcome. Training provided.
Adoption Counselors Conduct meet & greets with potential adopters after their application has been processed by the adoption screener, and complete adoption paperwork to finalize adoptions. Help when you can; no regular commitment required. Training provided.
Clerical Helpers Miscellaneous clerical jobs or computer data entry is periodically needed. Most clerical projects can be done at home.
Additional Jobs Help with fundraisers, seasonal or community events.
