Volunteer at North Shore Animal League America
Volunteers Save Lives!
The Animal League could not perform all of the hands-on work that we do without the help of an incredible team of dedicated volunteers.
If you're an animal lover, and can volunteer at least four hours a week for a year, we really want to hear from you.
All Types of Volunteer Positions
Are Our Heroes
Meet a few of the dedicated volunteers who are the heart of our team.
From bottle-feeding motherless kittens to answering phones and offering foster care to our special needs animals, all of our volunteers improve the quality of life for the tens of thousands of pets sheltered at the Animal League each year.
What It Takes to Become a Volunteer
In addition to possessing an abundant love for all animals, volunteers must be able to volunteer at least four hours per week for a full year, be at least 16 years of age, attend training classes, and fully support all of Animal League America's policies and philosophies.
All it takes to get started is an application, an interview at a scheduled Volunteer Open House, some basic orientation classes, and the ability to make a weekly commitment of at least four hours.
How to Apply
Simply complete an online application or stop by Human Resources to pick up a volunteer application, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM through 4:00 PM.
Human Resources can be found at 16 Lewyt Street, Port Washington, NY.
After you have submitted your application, you are invited to attend the next scheduled Volunteer Open House. This will give us a chance to meet you, as well as explain the different opportunities we have available.
