Volunteers are the heart of our organization and play a vital role in everything we do. Through the generous donation of time and talents, volunteers make a direct impact on achieving our mission.

We operate by the philosophy that we are ALL a team of volunteer members in the organization. Everyone is welcome to bring new ideas to the table to help shape the direction of the organization.

New Volunteers

Volunteering is a great way to help improve the lives of pets in need. We offer many ways for you to help make a difference in the lives of these animals.


Group Volunteering

Paw Partners Unleashed welcomes groups of volunteers year-round! Corporate, high school, college, and social groups can help with events, sorting and processing incoming donations, and other special projects. Group volunteering is a great way to do team building and support our mission to help pets in need!

If your group is interested in joining us for a service project or has ideas for a specific group project in which you would like to offer assistance, contact us today.

Youth Volunteering

Our minimum age requirement for volunteering is 16 years of age. However, kids under 16 can still help us in other ways. We have opportunities for youth and their families, schools, or youth-based organizations to get involved by doing special projects such as, hosting a donation drive to collect pet supplies, or holding a fundraiser like a bake sale to benefit Paw Partners Unleashed.
