Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

We are always in need of volunteers to help with foster care for a pet waiting a forever home, helping answering phones, making appointments and help with general office work or special events volunteers.

Join our volunteer program by helping keep our animals well taken care of cleaning, feeding, litter scooping, interacting and socializing with our animals.

Volunteers help us in our office with answering phones, paperwork, filing, mailings, taking messages and office tasks.

If you are interested in fostering a dog or cat awaiting adoption, please call or e-mail us at animaladvocates@comcast.net to learn more about this rewarding program.


We have fundraiser events throughout the year and we need volunteers to make our events successful. The money raised through our fundraising events helps spay and neuter animals in need, and it helps animals needing healthcare and vaccinations. Our three major annual fundraisers is the Silent Auction for Animals in November, the Mother’s Day event in May the day before Mother’s day, and our Giant Summer Yard Sale the last weekend in July, in addition to the Pet Fest and Walk for Animals, Adoptions Days and fairs and festivals.

There are many feral cat colonies located throughout the area at businesses, restaurants, abandoned buildings, farms, industrial parks, complexes and backyards that need to be trapped in humane traps and spayed/neutered and vaccinated. We provide the necessary equipment and training to get started in this very important effort.

We are always in need of cat shelters to protect those living outside in the cold weather. We never have enough shelters to go around.

We have many volunteer opportunities including photography, graphic design, transporting pets to spay/neuter or vet appointments and more.

If you would like to be involved in any of the programs listed above, or you have any questions regarding volunteer opportunities at Animal Advocates, please call us at (508) 991-7727 or e-mail animaladvocates@comcast.net
