No matter who you are or what you do, you can make a difference!

Whether you enjoy physical labor or prefer administrative tasks, it all helps!

Without our wonderful volunteers, CARE would not be what it is today! And we’re always looking for new members to join the CARE family; people who really care and want to make a difference in the animals' lives!

The volunteer program at CARE offers an excellent opportunity to make a direct impact. On-site work is real work and needs to be done regardless of whatever mother nature throws at us. You name it, CARE volunteers do it; from cleaning enclosures, preparing food, facility maintenance, painting, working fundraisers, giving tours, and helping out with the daily chores. It is anything but glamorous, it is a labor of love!

If you are interested in contributing to the lives of the animals at CARE, please fill out our ONLINE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION below. You must be at least 18 years of age and be a local resident to become a volunteer.

PLEASE - Serious inquiries only! Volunteer training requires time, energy, and dedication both on your part and ours. Questions or concerns about volunteering can also be e-mailed to us via our Contact Page.

If you are underage or out of the area, there are other ways you can help, including:

  • Public and Media Relations
  • Fundraising and Grant Writing
  • Graphic Design
  • IT Support

Please email us through our Contact Page for ideas on how you can help.

We also offer opportunities for groups to participate in volunteer service days. Please contact us for more information.
