Adults: Off-Site

If you’re looking for a way to get involved outside of the shelter, or are currently unable to make a 1-year commitment to one of our on-site programs, consider taking part in one of our off-site volunteer programs. From helping with community outreach as a special events or street team volunteer to making crafts and enrichment items for the animals, there are many ways for you to get involved.

Special Events

If you’re interested in representing The Anti-Cruelty Society at our special events, consider training to be a Special Events Ambassador. In this role, people from the community act as ambassadors for our organization by attending mixers, fundraisers, donation drives, outreach parties, and other social meet-ups on our behalf.

Special Event Ambassador trainings are done on a one-on-one basis. If you’re interested in scheduling a training session, contact our Special Events team at

Pet Visitation

Do you have a dog that is super social and well-behaved? Have you dreamed of volunteering side-by-side with your pet? If so, then the Pet Visitation Program sounds like a perfect fit! For additional details on joining the Pet Visitation Team, click here.

Do-It-Yourself Donations

Enrich the lives of shelter pets by creating fun and functional crafts from home. From no-sew to crochet, we have a variety of techniques and projects that you can create and then donate to needy shelter animals. For a list of all of our DIY projects, click here.

Knitters for Critters

In this fun, hands-on opportunity, volunteers can knit or crochet blankets and toys for homeless pets. We’ll even provide you with a Knitters for Critters starter kit filled with yarn, needles, instructions and more! Learn more about this help-from-home volunteer opportunity here.
