Volunteer

OC Animal Care is extremely fortunate to have hundreds of dedicated volunteers that assist our shelter on a daily basis. Each year, our volunteers contribute more than 100,000 hours of service to the shelter. Volunteers assist by hosting donation drives, socializing and grooming available animals, leading shelter tours, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, attending community events, and participating in special shelter events.

Our volunteers play an integral role in placing animals and promoting shelter adoption. We couldn’t do everything that we do without their support! We truly appreciate their choice to join our team in helping more animals find their forever homes!

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are not currently onboarding new volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in other ways, such as at our monthly Pet Food Pantry event, or by getting a group together to make enrichment items for our animals, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at Dawn.Maestas@occr.ocgov.com.
