Volunteering at Peggy Adams 

IMPORTANT: Due to COVID-19, all scheduled volunteer orientations have been cancelled.

Thank you for interest in becoming a volunteer at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League! We truly appreciate you for wanting to donate some of your valuable free to time to help our animals. Our volunteer team plays an important role in helping us fulfil our vision of creating a community where 100% of the adoptable animals find loving homes and no animals will be euthanized because of pet overpopulation.

Each task performed by volunteers makes a significant contribution to the health and welfare of our 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 animal’s home, there are other areas and departments that need your help and when you volunteer, you help 1000's!

To volunteer on campus, you must be at least 16 years old. 

If you are individual looking for court-appointed volunteer hours, please ensure you meet the criteria before moving forward in the process.
