Make a difference and help us save more lives by becoming a Pets In Need volunteer.


Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a pin volunteer!

Due to overwhelming support and interest, we are currently not accepting new shelter animal volunteers.

We are still accepting volunteers for our foster and education Programs. If you are interested, contact our Volunteer Manager, Rebecca Marsh,



  • For safety reasons, volunteers must be 18 years old or older. Those under 18 are invited to check out our Enrichment volunteering, Camp PIN Pals, and Teen Shadow programs.
  • Must commit to volunteer for at least 6 months. Because of the staff resources required to train volunteers, we do not offer short-term volunteer opportunities for individuals. For info about corporate and workplace volunteering opportunities, please visit our corporate volunteer page.

Upcoming Orientations

Our next volunteer orientation will be announced Spring 2019.
