As a non-profit organization, Foothills Animal Rescue (FAR) relies on our helpful volunteers who perform a variety of support services including assistance with FAR’s weekly adoption activities, reception, providing foster homes for animals awaiting adoption, and the daily care of our animals and facilities.
We also have an ongoing need for volunteers to help with our Resale Boutique where 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the care of our rescued animals.
We offer volunteer opportunities to people 16 and above. If you are a young person (under 18 years old) and would like to volunteer, please note that we will need a permission form signed by your parent. We do have other programs that young people 16 or below can be involved in such as raising funds, doing a supply drive or helping to promote an animal for adoption through their social groups. We do not have a community service program available.
All new volunteers must attend our orientation and training classes prior to starting your tenure here at Foothills. Please make note of the upcoming training dates:

All boutique volunteers will confer with Lisa Morgan and Dixie Lee Melkus, Store Managers, for their schedule.
We cannot do it without your help and appreciate the time you give to our furry friends!
