Volunteers

Volunteering for in-house sanctuary work is a rewarding experience!

Our in-house volunteers provide help on many levels. From housekeeping, laundry, and kennel/cage cleaning to feeding, grooming, cat care and dog walking, each and every aspect of the volunteer’s job is vital in keeping our sanctuary open and running smoothly on a daily basis.

We are looking for more volunteers in-house, and can’t wait to meet you! Click on the link below to open and download the *Volunteer Application to your computer. If you have the Adobe Acrobat Reader you have the option to fill out the form on your desktop and then save it and attached it to an e-mail to send directly to us. Or, print out the form and bring it by the sanctuary during open lobby hours and drop it off in our vestibule in the appropriate box if no one is readily available to speak with you. We will be in touch soon!

*Volunteers under the age of 18 must fill out the Youth Volunteer Application, and have to be 16 or older in order to work inside the sanctuary. We do have outside opportunities available for those slightly younger – check out our other pages for more information.

The Volunteer Process:

Volunteers are what make Faithful Friends possible. Without compassionate and dedicated volunteers we wouldn’t be able to rescue, adopt and love the hundreds of animals we help each year. It is a fun and rewarding experience and the volunteer opportunities are endless.

To get started please complete and submit a volunteer application. It is helpful for you to tell us a bit about yourself so we can determine if your skills and availability fit our needs. Applications are reviewed on a weekly basis and you will be contacted for a phone interview. Please note you must be at least 16 years of age with a valid driver’s license. We ask for a minimum commitment of 2 shifts per month.

Certain volunteer opportunities within the sanctuary may require greater frequency and/or attending a required training session. If you are under 16 years old there are other ways to support the mission of FFAS by conducting a supply drive, collecting aluminum cans, hosting an event (lemonade stand, craft sale, etc), or assisting with one of FFAS events when appropriate. Please see the available templates located ???
Lastly, please note we cannot accommodate those seeking to fulfill court ordered community service.
