Volunteers are critical to Animal Aid's operations, assisting with the daily care needs and enrichment of the cats in our free-roam shelter; welcoming foster dogs and cats into their home and heart; engaging with adopters, shelter visitors, and community members; and participating on a variety of teams to support events, fundraising, and so much more. We couldn't accomplish our mission without the incredible time and dedication our volunteers give to the welfare of animals in need.
