Volunteer at ARLGP


We are excited to connect with community members who are as dedicated and enthusiastic about animals as we are.

Currently, we have over 400 weekly volunteers who help us with a wide variety of services and programs, both inside and outside the shelter! We offer a variety of volunteering programs to fit the needs of our community members.


Our weekly Shelter Helpers provide hands-on animal care and support, as well as assist with daily shelter operations. Shelter Helpers represent the core of our volunteer team; each visiting the shelter two hours a week for their assigned job. Shelter volunteers must be at least 13 years old, attend a New Volunteer Orientation, and a training session. We ask Shelter Helpers to maintain a regular volunteer schedule, and are required to have health insurance. Learn more about our Shelter Helpers program.


Fostering is a wonderful way to volunteer for the ARLGP, from the comfort of your home! Find out how you can become an ARLGP foster home.


Our new junior volunteer days offer youth the opportunity to experience shelter life hands-on with activities and projects that support every aspect of the facility, led by our shelter educators. Learn more.


Our Community Service program is designed for individuals who are required to perform a specific amount of volunteer hours in a short period of time (court-ordered, educational, etc.). Learn more about community service at ARLGP.


Group Volunteers from local businesses, organizations, and classrooms visit the ARLGP for project-based volunteering. Find out more about Group Volunteering.
