This is a great organization with a great cause - helping people struggling with illness and poverty take care of their pets so they don't end up in shelters. I love helping this great organization, and they make volunteering fun. There are lots of different opportunities you can help with, and the people are really great to work with!

I love volunteering with Phinney's Friends! They have loads of opportunities that don't require a lot of time commitment, so I'm able to pitch in where I can. I help out with animals and with some website stuff, two things I'm passionate about, so I love that I get to to both.

Phinney's Friends is a small nonprofit where you can help people and pets at the same time. Also, the group of people who run it is very active and accessible. It's really nice to be part of this organization!!
