Volunteer Opportunities

Dog with ballThank you for your interest in becoming a San Diego Animal Support Foundation (SDASF) VOLUNTEER!

The SDASF is an all-volunteer organization.

We are able to offer up to 7 hours of community service hours/court-ordered volunteer hours per event, if necessary. We can accommodate volunteer groups of any size, and military members are especially welcome! Fill out our VOLUNTEER FORM to be notified about upcoming events. *Note: We have a strict anti-spam policy and don't share our volunteer information with any other organizations. We will delete your info at your request in the future.

FOSTER OPPORTUNITIES: If you are interested in temporarily fostering a pet in your home until it is adopted, please email Darlene@SDShelters.org with the following info: Name, Phone, Address, list of other animals in home, which type of pet you'd like to foster (dog, cat, puppies, kittens, turtles/tortoises, birds, bunnies), and a little about your home and family, including the amount of time you'd be able to dedicate to supervising an animal, and the details of your family, home and yard, including fencing. Your e-mail WILL BE forwarded to our local rescue organization/shelter partners who may be interested in contacting you for assistance.

MEGA PETTM ADOPTION EVENT VOLUNTEERS: The SDASF organizes annual Mega PetTM Adoption Events in order to increase adoptions from reputable shelters and rescue agencies by bringing potential adopters and lots of dogs together in one fun, happy, stress-free environment, facilitating the matchmaking process! The participating adoption agencies are given free booth space, and admission is free to the public! These are the LARGEST Adoption Events (measured by the number of adoptable animals in one location) of any events in Southern California! We need lots of volunteers to make these events a success. We can accommodate individuals or volunteer groups of any size. Up to 7 hours of community service or court-ordered service hours can be earned in just one day. Military is especially welcomed! Please contact Naomi@SDShelters.org today to volunteer.
