Sometimes, the best gift you can give to pets in need is your time. So we’re thrilled that you’re interested in volunteering with APNRD. We rely on dedicated volunteers to help Save Them All. Below are some of the many ways you can volunteer.
All of these opportunities are available through our volunteer site. Simply register at apnrd.org.
Please note: APNRD.org requires that all new volunteers complete a volunteer orientation before becoming an active volunteer. Volunteers must be at least 12 years old and volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Pet Adoption Center
The Pet Adoption Center in South Florida features cats and dogs available for adoption from fosters & shelter partners. Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks, from animal care to cleaning.
If you love animals but can’t adopt, you can help by fostering a pet. For more information contact us at 954-281-2556.
Community cat programs
Community (aka stray, feral or free-roaming) cats are among the most at-risk pets in shelters around the country. APNRD provides trap/neuter/return (TNR) assistance throughout the state so that community cats can live safely in their neighborhoods and stay out of shelters. TNR is a humane and effective way to gradually decrease the number of these cats in our communities. Volunteers are needed to help with everything from education and outreach to trapping and caring for cats. Click here to learn more about our community cat programs.
APRND wants to ensure that everyone has access to spay/neuter services for their pets. We need volunteers to help educate the public about the benefits of spay/neuter and about how our programs can be of assistance.
APNRD Super Adoptions
APNRD holds two super adoption events each year in South Florida. These popular events feature adoptable pets, who come from dozens of rescue groups and shelters. Volunteers help hundreds of animals go home in a single weekend.
Thank you again for caring and for giving your time to help homeless pets. Together, we can Save Them All.
