Volunteer

Getting InvolvedWe are so grateful for the support of our community! Volunteers are a vital part of the animal rescue process and we are thankful for everyone's support. Check this page for the different volunteer opportunities we have, and contact us today if you would like to learn more. If you would like to submit an application to volunteer, please follow this link: Wolf Trap Volunteer Application. Thank you!

We have three primary ways for volunteering:
1) Fostering

2) Adoption Events:
We can always use help with participation at adoption events to help set up, check-in fosters, monitor puppies, and direct interested adopters.

3) Transport Check-In
Transport days require lots of hands-on opportunities when puppies arrive off of a 14 hour transport. The puppies are checked in and examined by the Veterinarian, vaccinated, dewormed, cleaned, fed/watered, and walked before they are picked up by their designated foster.

Youth Volunteer Opportunities
While our age requirement is 17 to volunteer unsupervised at our events, there are opportunities available for those under 17.

Youths can help by viewing our wish list and by setting up collection efforts for these much needed items with their girl/boy scout troops, teammates, classmates or church groups and deliver them to the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue events.

Advocating the work that the Wolf Trap Animal Rescue does is always helpful. Youths who are active on social media can 'like' us on Facebook and share our messages. They can also view our adoptable animal lists and promote their favorite shelter animals.
