Volunteers provide a variety of support services including assistance with FAR’s weekly adoption activities, providing “foster homes” for many animals awaiting adoption, database entry, cleaning and clerical support. Weekly adoptions are conducted at a variety of locations.
We offer volunteer opportunities to young people 16 and above. If you are a young person (under 18 years old) and would like to volunteer, please note that we will need a permission form signed by your parent. For insurance purposes, we cannot allow a child under the age of 16 to accompany a parent or guardian volunteering at the shelter.
We do not have a program for young people looking to complete community service.
ATTENTION CURRENT VOLUNTEERS: It is vital that all volunteers use the login prompt and schedule your time you wish to volunteer at FAR. This will inform our shelter team what animals will receive the extra attention they deserve for that day. We are hoping that you can schedule your time 3 days prior to your time here at FAR. This helps the shelter team to plan accordingly and allow them to work one-on-one with special cases. We can’t do it without your help and appreciate the time you give to our furry friends!
