Thank you for your interest in volunteering for AAPS

Our volunteer team is one of the biggest assets to our shelter and provides essential assistance in caring for the animals the shelter houses. Without volunteers, our shelter could not continue to save the thousands of animals we do every year. Volunteering is a rewarding experience and our animals are the ones who reap the benefits of our volunteer community’s generosity.

To volunteer, you need to be:

  • Over 18 years old
  • An up to date tetanus vaccination
