Volunteers are the backbone of the Refuge and your value is priceless. Volunteer activities include basic animal care, dog training, cat socialization, animal transport, taking photos and writing bios of our animals for our website, representing the Refuge at fundraising events, assisting in grant research, and more! If you have other skills you'd like to share with the Refuge, we'd be happy to hear how you'd like to help!
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Refuge is currently accepting in-person volunteers on a limited basis through our Lifesaving Volunteer Program and PetSmart volunteering program. Our PetSmart volunteering program includes regularly scheduled 3 hour shifts at the South Philly PetSmart caring for and adopting out cats. If you are interested in becoming a PetSmart volunteer, please fill out the relevant interest form below. We are currently at capacity on Lifesaving Volunteer applications.
