Help Shelter pets make matches with their new family!

Assist us in managing animals at various adoption events at off-site locations. Perform duties including filling water bowls, giving treats, spot cleaning, speaking to the public about different animals, walking dogs*, and helping with set-up and break down.

This opportunity is located throughout Santa Fe and surrounding cities at various venues and times. Even though it represents only two-three days a week, our mobile adoptions unit accounts for 35% of pet adoptions!

Having volunteers scheduled consistently for these events is essential for making adoption matches. These events also help the animals become more social and comfortable in a new environment with new people.

We provide all supplies. Volunteers just need to have their own transportation to get to the events.

*Canine Social Walker training is required. The Volunteer Coordinator will provide the necessary training.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our federal tax ID # is 85-6000484.

Santa Fe Animal Shelter focuses on accessible spay and neuter programs in an effort to beat animal population at its core. Creative adoption efforts and dozens of programs provide support for marginalized animals and work to place homeless animals into loving families.

Thanks to a partnership with the City of Santa Fe and the Bureau of Land Management, the main shelter is housed on a 100-acre campus complete with walking trails and play yards for daily enrichment for our Shelter residents, as well as single and multi-use public dog parks.

Come visit our facilities to experience how Santa Fe cares for its animals. The shelter is not just a place to adopt an animal or to find a missing one, but a place to visit over and over again. This is your shelter, built by this community - a place to find joy with companions.
