There isn't an application process prior to viewing the virtual open house session and open house is required for all new volunteers.

NOTE: The Open House says volunteers must be 17 years of age. Please disregard - the age has been lowered to 16 and we are working on updating the presentation. 

Volunteering at Peggy Adams 

Our volunteers play an important role at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Each task performed 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 animals home, there are other areas and departments that need your help and when you volunteer, you help 1000's!

How to Get Started...

Volunteer Open Houses are done virtually online. Viewing the open house presentation and scheduling a follow up interview with the Volunteer Program Manager are prerequisites to volunteering on campus. Training in certain areas must also be completed prior to the first shift. 

As a reminder, these open houses are meant for people ages 16 or older; for young adults and adults who can work independently with minimal supervision or special accommodation.

For all interested individuals who are 16 and 17 years old, please note that you will need to have a parent/guardian present during your interview to sign the liability waiver.
