Get Involved

As a non-profit organization, everything we do is made possible through donations of funds, supplies, and time from members of the community. There are many ways to support Pets In Need, including fostering, volunteering and donating cash or in-kind gifts that help us carry out our life-saving mission.


Volunteer at our shelter

We are constantly in search of animal lovers to join our volunteer team and help socialize, exercise, and train our dogs and cats. 

Make a Donation

Gifts from the general public are our lifeblood. They allow us to provide our animals with essential care. We are totally supported by private gifts, adoption, and program fees.
