Volunteer at Pets Alive

Pets Alive relies on the help of volunteers to care for the hundreds of animals within our care. You can make a huge difference in the lives of these animals by volunteering even a few hours.
Sponsor a Pet!
Volunteers are invited to apply to work in various animal care areas (cats, dogs and farm animals), event planning and fundraising, property and maintenance, and other tasks such as doing laundry, vehicle maintenance, running errands, transportation to and from veterinary appointments, cleaning and organizing our storage areas and other odd jobs. Skilled volunteers are needed such as licensed electricians, plumbers, carpenters and experienced groomers.

Volunteers are also needed to join the following teams and help us grow these programs throughout our community: Adoption Offsite Team, Pet Chow Pantry, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) Team, Events Team, Adoption team and Dog Improving Adoptabilty Team.

Volunteer Hours (once you have attended an orientation):
Monday Saturday from 10:00am-4:00pm
Sunday from 11:00am-4:00pm

New Volunteers / Orientations:
Anyone wishing to volunteer must first attend an appropriate volunteer orientation class depending on which animals they would like to work with. Orientation* provides the policies and procedures of the sanctuary along with the safety rules for the protection of both you and the animals.

Currently, we are revamping our entire volunteer program. We are very excited about what is to come in the next few months so make sure to check back often for some very exciting news starting in October!

During this time period, there will be no volunteer orientations during the month of September as we start setting things in motion. In the meantime, if you are interested in volunteering with Pets Alive, please email us at so we can be sure to contact you once we re-start orientations.

*Note: We do require ALL dog volunteers to be at least 16 years old, and anyone under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent at all times. We do have a Minor Consent Form and Safety Rules that everyone must follow.
