We are always in need of hardworking, passionate volunteers. Join the family and make a difference in the lives of all the rescued animals at the shelter, and in the animal welfare advocacy.

As a PAWS Volunteer, you will get assigned a variety of tasks.

Every little task, from dog walking to kennel cleaning, makes a huge impact in the lives of the animals at the shelter. There are over 300 animals that need care, and only a handful of caretakers. Office staff attend to dozens of visitors and phone calls, so volunteers that help out are truly appreciated. Other tasks you can help with include assisting in events and doing ocular inspections for prospective adopters.

Most volunteers have full-time jobs and families, and they have different skills and interests. You, too, can help in your own way. Read on below to see how you can be part of the PAWS family.

Volunteer Hours

As a charity organization, we do not give volunteer certificates to students for academic compliance. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where one dedicates their time and resources for no financial or social gain.

Volunteers who render at least eight (8) hours a month doing shelter or out-of-shelter work will be included in our active volunteer database, which means they get included in special activities and programs. Volunteers who foster shelter animals are also automatically awarded their 8-hour volunteer hours each month.

Pre-exposure rabies shots are required to do Direct Animal Care

(dog walking, bathing, grooming & cuddling)

… Yes, cuddling! This is how we socialize and prep them for their forever families. They need their cuddles, and you need your shots!

Direct Animal Care

Volunteers who have had their pre-exposure rabies shots can walk and bathe the dogs, groom and socialize the cats, help with cleaning cages and feeding, and other tasks that require direct contact with animals.

Office/Admin Work

Admin Assistants must be familiar with PAWS policies to be able to assist in taking phone calls, answering visitors’ questions and concerns, providing counseling, processing paperwork, and giving tours to PARC to visitors.

Humane Education

Volunteers can be trained to conduct seminars and presentations for schools, barangays, and private companies. Topics include Responsible Pet Ownership, Spay & Neuter, and other important Animal Welfare issues.

Adoption Team

These volunteers interview adoption applicants to determine it they are a good match with their chosen pet. They also conduct ocular inspections of their homes to ensure that the shelter animals go to loving families.

Events

PAWS often conducts fundraisers and other events in different locations. Volunteers are asked to help in many ways, including setting up and manning our booths, handing out flyers and handling the animals.

Training & Rehabilitation

Volunteers who are interested in this area should be trained by our Dog Behavior Specialist. This is an important part of the Adoption Program as it gets our rescued dogs ready for adoption.

Foster Care

Fostering is a life saving task. By fostering, you are making your home an extension of the shelter, and making it possible to save more animals. Volunteers who foster shelter animals are considered active volunteers.

Social Media

We count on volunteers to manage our social media presence. This may involve posting updates on Facebook or Instagram, taking photos or creating graphics for upload, or responding to comments.

Clinic Assistant

A volunteer may be asked to assist in some clinical or surgical procedures on animals if they are vaccinated, have prior experience, or a senior volunteer who is willing to undergo special training.

Disaster Relief

PAWS performs rescue operations in times of calamities, particularly when animals need to be removed from danger zones. Volunteers who wish to participate must receive special training in this area.

Lobbying & Legal Work

Volunteers who are familiar with the legal system are most welcome to assist in this area. Tasks include attending hearings, meeting with government officials and providing legal assistance in court cases.

Dr. Dog

Together with certified Dr. Dogs, volunteer handlers visit nursing homes, adult day-care centers, hospitals, and similar establishments with the aim of providing comfort and awareness to their residents.
