Make a Better Community, Together

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. With an active volunteer force many times the size of staff, volunteers make it possible for us to serve more than 60,000 animals each year, without ever turning a DC animal away. Our many volunteer tasks include:

  • Assisting medical staff providing low-cost veterinary services
  • Training and caring for dogs, cats and/or small mammals
  • Taking our adoptable dogs for a run at local parks
  • Helping animals find their forever homes
  • Supporting glamorous special events

Join the team striving to ensure a loving home for every unwanted animal, affordable medical care for every sick or injured animal, an end to animal abuse and cruelty, and stronger bonds between animals and people through education and training.
