Thank you for wanting to volunteer with our Rescue! Volunteering with an animal rescue organization is a gratifying experience that is difficult to match. It warms our hearts to see homeless pets become beloved members of families. 

Adult Volunteers

There is much to do at Paws 4 You Rescue, so bring your talents and expertise! We would love for you to be a part of our team. To ensure a more fulfilling volunteer experience, we are streamlining volunteering into the following Programs:

(1.) Buddies 4 Paws – Dog socialization and exercise

(2.) Transport – Getting dogs safely to and from events and veterinary appointments

(3.) Events & Fundraising – Raising the funds to save these dogs from euthanasia and care for them until homes are found

(4.) Retreat Support – Office and labor support at our facility

We are also looking for Program Leaders. Are you organized, goal oriented, dependable, and a good communicator? Do you like people and love dogs? Do you want to SAVE LIVES? We need you!

*All programs require volunteers to attend an orientation before beginning service. Orientations are held monthly and require a donation of $20 to attend.

Youth Volunteers

Our youth volunteers are an integral part of supporting our efforts in animal rescue serving as ambassadors of our mission.

Changes Effective January, 2021:

Please be advised that Petsmart management has made changes to their policy regarding onsite adoption events, and we will no longer be able to provide opportunities for our youth (ages 14-18) to volunteer at the store and showcase our rescue dogs. We realize that this may be a disappointment, and we apologize for that.  We are grateful to Petsmart for our long-standing partnership which began at our inception in 2007, and their support in helping us place so many of our dogs in loving forever homes.  Going forward, we will continue to showcase our dogs at the store utilizing our adult volunteers.


To learn more about volunteer opportunities and options to obtain community service hours, you must attend a mandatory virtual volunteer orientation. All who attend the orientation will receive 2 hours of community service
