Volunteer Opportunities at HAV

Love working with animals? Are you heartbroken by the huge number of dogs and cats that are euthanized in shelters every year? Then we want to hear from you! By joining our staff or becoming a volunteer you can help homeless animals thrive until we’re able to find them a forever home.

Become an HAVolunteer!
It’s the ultimate feel-good gig

Whether working with animals, the public, or behind the scenes, volunteers improve the quality of life for the rescues at Hearts Alive Village. We have so many ways for you to help. You can work in our adoption center, vet clinic, food pantry, thrift shop, or help with transporting animals, to name a few.

We value our volunteers – after all, it really does take a village! Your efforts bring comfort to the animals in our care and help us keep pets with their families and out of the shelter system. So don’t sit or stay on the sidelines…get in touch today!

“I’ve been volunteering with shelters and rescues for 15 years, but I have never worked with a more compassionate, dedicated, loving, friendly and organized rescue group than Hearts Alive Village.
