How You Can Help!

We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us! At APL, we rely on the kindness and dedication of our volunteers to help us care for the animals in our shelter. If you love animals and want to make a difference in their lives, we invite you to join our team.

Volunteering with us is a rewarding experience that allows you to help animals in need, learn new skills, and make friends with like-minded individuals. Our volunteers play a vital role in the daily operations of our shelter, providing essential care and support to our furry friends.

As a volunteer, you'll have the opportunity to assist with tasks such as feeding and walking animals, cleaning kennels, socializing with cats and dogs, and helping with adoption events. We also offer training and education programs to help you develop your skills and learn more about animal care.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, just fill out the volunteer interest form below to get started! APL’s New Volunteer Orientation and instructions for getting started will be sent to your email.

Get started by filling out the New Volunteer Interest Form and our Volunteer Orientation and Instructions will be sent directly to your email! 

Volunteer experiences include dog walking, cleaning, cat & dog socialization, pet therapy visits, office work, humane education, adoption events, fundraising and much more!

Volunteers under 16 years old must volunteer with a parent or legal guardian.
