Volunteers are our Heroes!

We are always in need of volunteers. It takes a village to keep the center running and taking care of the animals that live there. We welcome anyone interested in volunteering to reach out by filling out the form below and one of our staff will follow-up with you and set up a time to get you started. Many times we have our hands full of activities at the center, so filling out the form below and setting up a time to come in is the best way for us to get the most out of the time you have available to help. There are a number of different opportunities to volunteer. You can let us know where you feel your talents would best be served. Thank you for your interest. 

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Socializing the cats, dogs, puppies

  • Laundry, sweeping, mopping, dishes, basic cleaning

  • Watching the retail area which includes keeping things neat, greeting people as they come in, answering the phone

  • Adoption events, vending events, basic events to help advertise Heart of the Foothills

  • Help plan events, fundraising, sponsorships

  • Volunteer at the thrift store (Rescued Treasures). This will include organizing donations, learning the register, basic cleaning

  • Transport animals to and from vets office, transport animals to partner rescues

We hope to hear from you soon. Thank you for the giving of your time and talents to help our animals get a second chance and a new beginning.
