Looking for Volunteers

Dedicated volunteers are our most valuable asset. We simply can’t be successful without the services of dedicated volunteers. You can volunteer to help in many areas including walking dogs, socializing cats, helping at adoption events, becoming an adoption counselor, making phone calls from home, transporting animals to and from the vet, office tasks, providing support at fundraising events, and becoming a foster care provider.

Happy Tales!

Animal Rescue Project

Animal Rescue Project focuses on saving at-risk pets in pound facilities. We save homeless pets, one at a time, give them medical care and a safe temporary home, and provide responsible adoption services to those seeking pets.
