You can make a difference in the life of a pet by volunteering with Best Friends of Pets. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer without a parent or guardian present unless noted below. Volunteers at least 10 years old may volunteer with a parent or guardian present.
Spay Neuter Assistance Program
Help pets and their owners (and reduce pet overpopulation) from the comfort of your home. Check requests for our spay/neuter applications and mail out spay/neuter packets. Return calls as needed. Must be at least 21 years old to volunteer.
Are you a stickler for good writing and want to help pets? Help raise much needed funds and promote our programs by helping (writing or editing) with newsletter articles, press releases, grant applications and more.
Staff a table at community events. Provide information about Best Friends of Pets and our programs. Engrave pet ID tags when we take our tag engraver to events.
Marketing / PR
Use your expertise to help pets. Design social media posts, fliers, brochures or ads for our programs and events. Help share program information and event details on media websites.
Office / Clerical
Data entry is important to saving pets’ lives and reuniting lost pets with their owners. Enter information on pets that are spayed/neutered, vaccinated or microchipped. Engrave pet ID tags at our office. Help get newsletters ready for mailing.
We can’t say enough about how important good photos are! Take photos at community outreaches. Photos are used for Facebook, newsletters and more.
From fundraising events to being involved with new events reaching our community and pets, volunteers are important to making our events a success. Whether handling pets, organizing and planning, or helping where needed, feel good knowing you are making a difference for pets and their owners.
