Volunteer Opportunities: Peggy Adams Animal Rescue

Volunteers hard at work cleaning and packaging food.

Allison Bower, Staff Writer

If you’re interested in working with animals to complete your volunteer hours you could try the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. It is a weekly job consisting of 3-4 hour work shifts every week for at least three months. They are dedicated to finding homes for animals and making sure the environment they are in is comfortable. Pet overpopulation is a pig problem and this program is here to make sure no pets are euthanized.

You have to be at least the age of sixteen to be able to volunteer and you must be eighteen or older to walk dogs. If you are under eighteen, however, there are still opportunities for you such as cleaning the areas for the dogs. Cat care is a wonderful way for volunteers to earn hours. Fostering kittens through the iFoster program earns you plenty of hours and all from the comfort of your own home.

There is a 25$ start fee and you have to allow a background investigation as well. There are many strict requirements to make sure you are eligible to take care of another living creature. They are currently holding orientations virtually on zoom and you have to sign up online on the website where you should also read over to make sure this is a job for you.
