At SCRAPS, we could not be more grateful for our volunteers--they truly make our lifesaving work possible! Our volunteer program (PDF) supports every aspect of our shelter, from walking dogs and socializing cats to assisting with administrative tasks and facilitating special events. We would love to help you find the right volunteer opportunity for you, one that speaks to your interests and suits your schedule! To get started, please complete our onlineapplication.
To work with animals, you must be at least 18 years of age or accompanied by a parent or guardian! But, if you're under 18, there are still plenty of ways to help animals: volunteer with SCRAPS (PDF)!
SCRAPS’ Foster Program affords animals the lifesaving opportunity to receive love and care outside of the shelter while preparing for adoption or alternate placement. Our most common foster kiddos include kittens and puppies under three months of age, cats and dogs of any age recovering from illness or surgery, and cats and dogs who are emotionally struggling in the shelter or need additional time and patience to learn to trust humans.
To foster, you must be 18 years of age (or at least 16 years of age with support from a parent/guardian).
