WE HAVE A BIG JOB TO DO AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!

LA Animal Services (LAAS) is looking for volunteers who are committed, caring and responsible to truly make a difference in the lives of the abandoned and homeless animals in our care. We need friendly, outgoing and personable volunteers to assist the public and work with the staff in our six Animal Care Centers and at mobile adoption events.

Apply online: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=71176500

***Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are currently open to the public only by appointment, and we are not allowed to have volunteers in our facilities. It is still worth it to apply now, because you'll be first in line for orientations when we can re-open to volunteers***

YOUR WORK IS VALUED...AND VALUABLE Our volunteers make a huge difference in the lives of the animals in our care by providing them with love, exercise and socialization, introducing them to potential adopters, and by networking them to the public on social media.
