Volunteer at our Shelter
At Stray Rescue, we could not rescue as many animals as we do without our volunteers. They make achieving our mission possible. Our volunteer program offers something for everyone.
- Shelter volunteers - care for animals staying at our 2 shelters in St. Louis City, including food preparation, feeding, providing enrichment, walking dogs, cleaning enclosures, etc.
- Adoption Event volunteers – lead adoption events, handle shelter dogs at adoption events, and help process adoption applications.
- Fundraising volunteers – work at Stray Rescue fundraising events (gala, golf tournament, art exhibition) and offsite fundraisers including help with set-up, registration, auction, take-down, transport etc.
- Outreach volunteer - information booths and merchandise tables at special events.
Please note you must be at least 18 to volunteer at our shelters.
In order to best accommodate large groups from schools, businesses, and other organizations, complete the volunteer form and we will contact you to schedule an orientation and service day.
Court Ordered Community Service
Stray Rescue accepts court ordered community service volunteers on a case by case basis. If you need to complete a certain number of court ordered community service hours, complete the volunteer form and we will contact you to discuss your requirements.
