Volunteer to help rescue cats and dogs

Almost Home Foundation is an all volunteer animal rescue group. Without the support of hundreds of volunteers this rescue group would not exist.

Volunteer Opportunities

AHF has several types of volunteer positions. We have permanent positions, one-time event opportunities, special skills opportunities (such as grants), virtual opportunities (web, social media, graphics) and those for providing foster homes for our animals. We appreciate the time and commitment that each of these positions will require!

Due to Covid restrictions we no longer have opportunities for those needing service hours for school or court supervision.
