Animal Aid

What We Do

Animal Aid is a charitable non-profit organization funded solely through private donations and dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals. Our mission is to reduce animal birth rates and suffering through proactive education, financial assistance to community members who cannot afford urgent veterinary care, and finding permanent homes for the animals (some with special needs) in our care. Animal Aid provides the necessary veterinary care and socialization before adoption to loving, responsible, permanent homes. Without volunteers, Animal Aid would not exist. That's why we're always in need of dedicated volunteers to help care for animals during their stay at the shelter. If you love animals and can spare as little as one morning or evening per week, our animals need you! 

Opportunities for service with us

Long-term opportunities (3 month commitment & required training):

On-site volunteers supervised by a paid staff person or experienced volunteer may provide food, water, brushing, love and attention to our animals, and assist with cleaning kennels, washing dishes and laundry, and changing litter boxes and bedding.
