Our volunteers play an important role at the League and each task performed makes a significant contribution to the health and welfare of the animals. By offering your time and talent, you improve the quality of life for our animals while they wait for their new forever homes. If you think you can't volunteer because you'd want to take all of the animals home, there are other areas and departments that need your help and when you volunteer, you help 1000's!
