At Stray Rescue, we're always looking for dedicated volunteers! We couldn't survive without them. To volunteer, fill out our online volunteer form, or call us at 314-771-6121. Your help is greatly appreciated! Please note you must be at least 18 to volunteer at our shelters. Some of the events and activities that we can always use help with are as follows:

  • People to care for and walk animals staying at our 2 shelters in St. Louis City, even if it is one hour a week or every day.
  • People to help lead adoption events, or handle shelter at adoption events.
  • Recruitment of committed volunteers and fosters.
  • People to work with fundraising and fundraising events.
  • Help with information booths and merchandise tables at special events.
  • Volunteers for Stray Rescue events (Urban Wanderers, Holiday Gala, Golf Tournament, block parties, etc)
  • If you can help with any of these events, or have other talents that you think we would find helpful, please give us a call or fill out our online volunteer application. Thank you!

Group Volunteering:

     In order to best accommodate large groups from schools, businesses, and other organizations, please contact us to schedule an orientation. We are delighted to have you as volunteers, but depending on the size of your group, we may need to set up a personal orientation time.

Court Ordered Community Service:

     Stray Rescue does accept, on a case by case basis, some volunteers who have court ordered community service to complete. If you need to complete a certain number of court ordered community service hours, please contact our volunteer coordinator directly for more information, grant@strayrescue.org.
