Group Volunteers

We create a volunteer experience tailored for your group at one of our adoption centers—bringing you right into the heartbeat of what we do. Join the community of compassion that enables us to serve more than 60,000 animals a year, without ever turning a D.C. animal away.

In addition to their acts of service onsite, group volunteers fundraise in advance or facilitate a gift from their organization so that they can sponsor animals they meet during their time with us. Promoting their sponsored animals on social media can be hugely impactful in finding a deserving animal a forever home more quickly, while providing a great example of service to the community.

Make a meaningful difference to the animals of DC as a team!
