"Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart." ~Elizabeth Andrew

Welcome to Pet Adoption Fund Volunteer Program:

We are an all volunteer organization and welcome your participation in several rewarding activities.If you want to make a big difference in the lives of our residents, there are many ways you can get involved. We need volunteers over the age of 18 years old to walk our dogs of all sizes, spending time with our cats, grooming our dogs and cats, taking photos to post online, helping in the office, or helping with adoption events. We have no minimum hour requirement, and the kennel is open to our volunteers 6 days a week between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m.


If you are an experienced groomer, please consider donating some of your time for a rewarding experience, and to help our dogs become more adoptable.

If you are over the age of 18, and are interested in volunteering opportunities, please contact Megan at (818) 601-6916 or email us at <>. Please include a phone number where you can be reached. We look forward to hearing from you.

*** Note: A $10.00 deposit will be required for each leash, if your interest is to work with our dogs. We only use a 'slip-on' type leash, and no other types of leashes, leads, collars will be permitted.

Pet Adoption Fund is a no-kill shelter, and that means, for some of our residents PAF may be the only loving home they'll ever know. Our volunteers play a huge role in enriching the lives of those less fortunate ones. We have many dogs and cats waiting to welcome you with open paws. Get involved today!

If you would prefer to work one-on-one, we would love to have you. You can choose one dog/cat, focus on establishing a bond, work on socialization skills, and ultimately start networking the pet in hopes of finding a forever home as soon as possible.
