Why Volunteer?

  • Your presence as a volunteer will help animals during their transition stay at AFA to get ready for a new, forever home.
  • If you ever wanted to learn about animal behavior and training, this is your chance to develop new skills while exploring the field of animal care.
  • It's a great way to meet people with similar interests and make new friends.
  • You'll learn new skills and work experience for future endeavors.
  • And of course walking dogs is great exercise for both you and the dog.
