The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Every day, more than 5,500 dogs and cats are killed in America's shelters. But every day, there's something all of us can do to help save those animals. Together, we can Save Them All.

Best Friends is the most organized, well-run animal rescue I have ever worked with/for - and I've been volunteering in this field for well over 10 years.
All the staff and volunteers alike are very helpful and passionate about this cause. They have training for all positions and people in place to assist you through your volunteering journey.
The provide a wealth of knowledge not only to their staff and volunteers but to the general public as well.
I can't say enough about this great organization.
