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.
