We ♡ Our Volunteers
We are 100% run by volunteers. We simply could not do this work without our family of volunteers who are dedicated to our mission. On our team, we have volunteer accountants, architects, civil engineers, environmentalists, graphic designers, videographers, etc. and of course: animal lovers! If you have a special skill, or just love animals, we want you on our team.

We have over 80 weekly caregiver volunteers. Below are a handful of these generous individuals.
