Volunteer at our Shelter
Volunteers are essential to Stray Rescue's mission. We rely on our devoted volunteers to help us provide a high quality of life to our adoptable animals as they wait for a home. There are many volunteer duties which directly help the animals we are caring for including walking or taking pups to our play yards for exercise and cuddles. Volunteers may also assist in educational outreach, fundraising events, laundry, off-site pet adoptions, kitty socialization, and so much more!
Stray Rescue requires an introductory orientation for all of our new volunteers, which covers safe handling techniques of animals and covers all the ways to help animals at our center.

It is impossible for us to fully express our gratitude for our Volunteers, but we'll do our best to honor them as they deserve. Our Volunteers selflessly allocate their own personal time for the betterment of our beloved animals; serving those without a voice without seeking personal reward or recognition.
Volunteers are woven deep into the fabric of Stray Rescue. Everyday they're at the shelter walking dogs, tackling the endless mounds of laundry, helping with special projects, and most importantly volunteering their love to animals who desperately need to feel the warmth, trust, and compassion of a human touch.
Our animals require unconditional love. In order to love you must open your heart and become emotionally vulnerable to the possibility that things may not work out. And allowing yourself to become vulnerable requires courage knowing that heartache and pain may be on the other side. Our volunteers lean fearlessly into that vulnerability with courage and grace, unafraid of having their hearts broken.
If our precious animals understood the concepts of fortune, fame, and glory they would graciously bestow all of that on our volunteers in return for the endless and unconditional love they receive.
