Volunteers Are the Heart of Animal Welfare League!



Get started today!

Volunteers are an essential part of Animal Welfare League. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available at the shelter, The Menagerie retail store, and our fundraising events.

At the shelter, volunteers make an impact on the lives of our animals by providing them with the love and care necessary to keep them happy and healthy while they await their new family. On any given day you can find our volunteers walking dogs, grooming cats, and snuggling rabbits. As with any animal shelter, cleaning is a full day affair with a lot of laundry and dishes to do. We are always looking to add go-getters and animal advocates to our volunteer team!

The Menagerie by AWL in Howland needs volunteers for cashier assistance, light housekeeping and merchandising, as well as help sorting, cleaning, and prepping incoming donations. For more information, stop in and talk to a store associate.

Volunteers are needed to help at fundraising events, setting up, selling raffle tickets, organizing activities, acquiring donations for basket auctions, and more! Additionally, to help support our mission and continue education on responsible pet ownership, AWL often participates at other events by setting up a booth or display often manned by volunteers.
