Volunteering is an excellent way to help rescues. Most rescue shelters rely on help from volunteers. We encourage you to find your local rescue.

Some things you can help with:

  • Dog walking / feeding / handling
  • Cat socializing / feeding / handling
  • Cleaning animal areas and facility
  • Bathing animals
  • Greeting guests for special events
  • Assisting potential adopters

Adopt NY

is a volunteer-run organization working to make New York No Kill. One of our many strategies is a network of 45 NY rescue groups (and counting). We promote their animals through Facebook and this website, which currently features over 2,000 adoptable dogs and cats.
