Become a Volunteer


√ Complete the volunteer application

√ Attend one or more levels of orientation


Thank you for your interest in volunteering. You can sign up for a community event or become an official AAF volunteer by completing the volunteer application and attending one or more levels of orientation.


Your future with AAF may involve serving as a shelter volunteer, specializing in cat or dog care, fostering a pet in your home, joining an AAF committee, or more. Feel free to start in one role and let us know if you would like to try a different role. AAF offers a unique approach to volunteering by allowing volunteers to determine which opportunities fit their interests, goals, and availability.


AAF welcomes Junior Volunteers who are under the age or 15 and volunteer alongside their responsible  adult. The adult will complete the secure online volunteer application and attend New Volunteer Orientation with the Junior Volunteer.


To get started, complete the secure online volunteer application. You will receive an immediate confirmation with instructions for signing up for a new volunteer orientation. We refer to this volunteer orientation as “Level 1-New Volunteer Orientation” because it is the first step toward volunteering at AAF.


If you have trouble with the sign up, please email office@aafpets.org for assistance.
