Our organization currently needs volunteers to interact with our cats and since it is kitten season we also need fosters as well.
Interactions with people make our cats happy and helps them socialize and become more adoptable. We provide training on handling our animals.
All volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Sometimes we have groups from schools volunteer, which must be accompanied by their teacher or chaperone.
We also have opportunities to walk and socialize with our dogs as well.
Thank you, we look forward to having you on board!
Note: We are looking for volunteers within the 5 boroughs only.
You also will be trained on both Dog & Cat duties unless you are allergic. Training is about 3-4 hours and you must stay for the whole session.
New Beginning is the only No Kill Shelter in the Bronx. We receive no city funding so we are currently seeking dedicated volunteers to help keep this shelter running. We need Volunteers to walk dogs, socialize, and/or clean cat cages. We are also seeking volunteers to help with adoption events, such as bringing dogs and cats to PetSmart and/or Petco. Once you decide to become a volunteer, we ask that you dedicate a minimum of 10 hours per month to the shelter. This also applies to groups. The training lasts about an hour and a half and is done the second Saturday & Sunday of every month. Once you receive the training you are welcome to come in any day of the week. The shelter is open from 9am-6pm every day.
