Attention Students! Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League Offers New Volunteer Opportunities this Summer Break

Summer break is here and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League just reduced their minimum volunteer age! Students (16 years of age and older) looking to help homeless animals can now choose from an array of rewarding volunteer opportunities at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League.

Volunteer openings at Peggy Adams include: Adoption Concierge, Lobby Greeters, Feline & Canine Animal Care, Dog Walking, Animal Enrichment, Kitten Infant Holding, Peggy’s Pantry, Animal Photographers/Videographers, Animal Biography Writers, Social Media, Graphic Design and Fostering. 

Volunteering is a great way to get involved in the community, learn more about animal welfare and help save lives! Students who volunteer can also use their time toward community service hours needed for school and it looks great on a resume. Many Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League staff members began as volunteers, so volunteering is a wonderful way to follow a passion that one day may lead to a career.

“We have so many wonderful volunteer opportunities available for students age 16 and up who are passionate about helping animals,” explains Rich Anderson, Executive Director/CEO of Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. “We are incredibly grateful for our volunteers, particularly during the summer months when we need them most. Because of our volunteers, we are able to save more homeless animals’ lives and make a greater impact on the community.”
