Become a Volunteer

The Buddy foundation is unique in the fact that we are all volunteers, not a single person is paid. All the time, energy, and funds go directly to the care of our animals. Complete the volunteer form and our Volunteer Coordinator will be in contact with you within 2-3 weeks, usually by email, please check your SPAM folder. Indicate whether you want to help with cats/dogs, or any other specific task you can do. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old and have a current Tetanus Immunization. If you are younger than 18, please look at the Donate page to see how you can help.

If you want to be a general volunteer and have no specific interest, we can also use your help around the shelter. Such as doing laundry, folding it, putting it in proper locations, mopping floors, cleaning windows, and more. If you have the time and the interest, we will find the work for you!
