Help the animals of Rescue Village!

Join our Amazing Team of Volunteers

Make Lives Better for the Animals and People of Northeast Ohio

NOTE: Due to COVID, we regrettably are not recruiting new shelter volunteers at this time, nor are we accepting new Reading Volunteers. However, we are ALWAYS looking for new foster families, especially during COVID!  We truly thank you for your interest.

We’re thrilled that you’re interested in volunteering at Rescue Village! The success of Rescue Village is truly a testament to our volunteers. More than 400 animal lovers and advocates give love and quality care to all of the critters here. If you like walking dogs, socializing kitties, pitching in at events, finding fur-ever homes, assisting in our administrative office, or keeping kennels tidy, then we have animals (and people) who would love to meet you!

Our volunteers fulfill a variety of essential roles and serve as an extension of our staff. We also have many volunteer foster families who help us house our animals while they await adoption and allow us the space to take in more animals in need.

We welcome your interest in becoming a volunteer and invite you to view our current openings for volunteers.
