Want to do good in your community and get a regular furry-friend fix? Become a volunteer at the Dumb Friends League and help us with our mission to end pet homelessness and animal suffering. 

When you volunteer at the League, you’re joining a family of volunteers and staff committed to providing love and support for the animals in our care. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Whether it’s giving basic care to animals at one of our locations or providing a temporary home for a foster pet until it’s ready for adoption, we hope there is an opportunity that is a good fit for you.  

  • Age Requirement: General volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Some positions require you to be at least 18 years of age to volunteer. Under 16? Learn more about youth opportunities through our Humane Education department.
