Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
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.
VOLUNTEER TIME COMMITMENT - We ask that you commit to at least 6 hours per month, for at least 6 months. Once approved and trained, volunteers are welcome to come help any time we are open to the public. Our public hours are Tuesday through Saturdays 8 am - 5 pm, and Sunday 11 am - 5 pm.
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.
NOT ENOUGH TIME? THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO HELP!
Make a tax-deductible contribution: You can choose the Animal Welfare Trust Fund, The Spay/Neuter Trust Fund, or the Star Program, which helps pay for medical care for severely injured animals rescued by LA Animal Services. http://www.laanimalservices.com/donate/
