Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program!

We will be holding a virtual volunteer information session on Thursday, September 9th at 6PM. We are recruiting new volunteers for the following roles:

Dog Playgroup Runner

Medical/Clinic Assistant

Dog playgroup runners assist the Behavior and Enrichment team with bringing dogs to playgroups. This is a great opportunity for people who love to walk, spend time with dogs and be outdoors. Learn more about dog playgroups here https://youtu.be/f-JCzJajA4A.

Medical/clinic assistants help the veterinary medical team in the spay/neuter clinic, at onsite and off-site vaccine clinics, and with other duties. It’s a great opportunity for people with prior veterinary medical experience and for those who are interested in learning more about the profession.

To attend the information session, please fill out a volunteer application. You will then receive a link to the virtual session.

If you are unable to commit to one of these roles at this time, other roles will be available in the future. Keep checking back and in the meantime, know that we can still use the support of our communities. There are many ways that you may continue to help and we need you! Please consider fostering a homeless pet, donating items from our Amazon wish lists, or making homemade masks.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age at the beginning of service. Volunteers under 18 will need parental permission. Volunteers are representatives of the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care & Control. There are guidelines that must be followed in order to maintain the standards of the care center and to provide you with an enjoyable and fulfilling volunteer experience.
