We are now into kitten season. We will need fosters for bottle feeding kittens, self-feeders and/or socializing. You do not need to do all of them, if you can't do the neonates that require being bottle fed every 3-4 hours, you can foster ones that are eating on their own, or ones that might need socializing.
Foster Volunteers will be asked to maintain the health of the kitten(s) during their stay with you.
The care that the kitten(s) require may include the following:
Bottle feeding the kitten(s) every 4 hours, which includes overnight hours.
Administering medication as needed.
Socializing with the kitten(s).
Bathing the kitten(s).
Keeping the kitten(s) kennel and other living areas clean.
If you are passionate about animal welfare and are ready to take on this challenging yet rewarding
assignment, we would like to hear from you!
If you are interested in volunteering as an animal foster, please submit your application at psanimalshelter.org/foster.
Thank you for considering the PSAS to donate your time and care.
Any questions please reach out to our Volunteer Office at

Volunteer at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter for the animals! Palm Springs Animals Shelter is a No-Kill shelter. Our goal is to make sure that each animal that leaves our shelter is much better off than when it arrived. We ensure that each animals' medical needs are attended to, that it is nourished, and has playtime and/or walk time each day. Behavioral or socialization needs are addressed through volunteer-run TLC programs. For volunteers who wish to work with people rather than directly with animals, we have opportunities for events, tour guides, concierge, adoption specialists, and administrators. Join us to help ensure that all the animals at our shelter receive the best care possible.
For twenty years Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter Foundation has successfully managed the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. Volunteers are an essential resource for the shelter, working in almost every aspect of shelter operations from medical, operational, administrative, behavior, transportation, events, and more. Volunteers can work directly with animals, learning skills to properly support the animals in our care. They can also volunteer in people-centric roles, working as adoption counselors, events coordinators, gardening and grounds-keeping, and much more.
The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is a municipal shelter serving the city of Palm Springs, not a private rescue. Therefore, we do not have the option to close our doors when we are full. The Palm Springs Animal Shelter does not euthanize animals for space or length of stay, so we are continuously challenged to place our animals in homes as quickly as possible. All volunteer opportunities at the Palm Springs Animal Shelter help us to fulfill our goal of supporting the animals during their stay and finding homes for our animals. We couldn't operate the shelter without the assistance of our volunteers - we have immense appreciation of our volunteer community. Please join us!
