Volunteer opportunity description

Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS NY) is a grassroots, volunteer-driven organization. If you enjoy spending time with both people and pets, we offer wonderful opportunities for our volunteers (18 years old or older) to provide direct services to our clients, mainly through our Housecall Program. Volunteers provide help with things such as dog walking, litter box maintenance, transportation to/from the vet, and other pet-related tasks our clients struggle to do on their own.

In order to begin providing services, all volunteers are required to attend an orientation. We are flexible in terms of the level of commitment, and welcome all interested individuals to attend an orientation session to learn more about our work. You will learn more about PAWS NY and the services you will ultimately provide to our clients.

Although many of our volunteer services are currently suspended, it is vital that we onboard as many volunteers as possible now to service what we expect to be a growing number of people who need our help in the future. We're currently offering virtual volunteer orientations. We hope you'll join us!
