Our volunteers work alongside our staff to assist with day-to-day operations, maintain a clean and safe environment, and enrich the experience of animals at Emerald City Pet Rescue.


Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, or 16 years of age or older if volunteering alongside a parent or guardian. They must be willing to make a three-month commitment of at least two one-hour shifts per month, followed by a regular commitment thereafter if continuing service. 

Volunteer Opportunities

At Emerald City Pet Rescue, volunteers are critical to the success of our mission. Volunteer support takes many forms, from cleaning kennels and participating in events, to brushing cats and socializing dogs. 

Due to the success of our operation, we are fortunate enough to receive a high volume of volunteer applications. Volunteer applications are currently closed. Please check back toward the end of the year for available volunteer opportunities.
