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:
