Adopt-A-Pet is a foster-based rescue group that is always in need of more dedicated volunteers, both hands-on with the animals and behind the scenes - Whether it's once a week or once a month - Whether it's helping at adoption shows, screening applicants, transporting, dog walking, photographing, phone work, clerical work, computer work, fundraising or fostering a pet - We need your time, your talents, your ideas and your enthusiasm, and we'd love to have you on board.

The first step is to attend a New Volunteer Orientation where you will learn more about Adopt-A-Pet, what volunteer opportunities are available and how you can fit into our organization. The orientation takes 2 1/2 hrs. Orientations are held monthly, and the schedule is posted on our website:

Mission Statement

ADOPT-A-PET is a not-for-profit humane organization dedicated to saving the lives of lost, abandoned or otherwise homeless dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and finding them new loving homes.


ADOPT-A-PET provides a safe refuge and a second chance for homeless pets and finds them new "forever" homes. All animals at Adopt-A-Pet are found permanent loving homes. Animals remain with us for as long as it takes to find them just the right family.

ADOPT-A-PET does not own a shelter facility. Except for a small satellite adoption center in a local pet store, all of our animals are boarded at local animal hospitals, doggy daycares or placed in foster homes while waiting for adoption.

ADOPT-A-PET provides all necessary medical care for every animal. All animals are health-checked, vaccinated, treated for any medical problems, and spayed or neutered.


We'll work with your schedule.
