Join Our Volunteer Team

Volunteers are the pulse of our organization.   We rely on animal lovers like you to help us in our mission to save the most vulnerable animals and enrich the lives of pets and people.

There are so many ways to Volunteer with Paws For Life Utah.

In order to ensure every dollar counts towards saving “at risk” dogs and cats, we run a very lean organization with only 2 full time staff members. We rely heavily on our volunteers to keep our organization running! Whether you have 30 minutes or 30 hours to give you can have an impact on the life of a shelter pet.

There are many unique ways to volunteer at Paws For Life. From helping out at our adoption center, fostering a shelter pet, organizing events, outreach in our community and more.

At The Adoption Center:

  • Walk dogs on Saturdays
  • Socialize cats
  • General cleaning

Outside of the Adoption Center

  • Transport Animals
  • Support Adoption Events
  • Caring for animals at Events
  • Help organizing Fundraisers and Events
  • Administrative support, (remote)
  • Marketing/PR support

Contact the Paws For Life staff if you have interest or questions.

Paws For Life staff
I have been a volunteer for Paws for Life Utah for 8 years, participating in adoption events, fostering, and transporting. My greatest enjoyment in volunteering is witnessing the joy between a new adopter and a shelter pet finding one another!
