Fundraising Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to help us raise funds for animal care.

Individual donations fund 34.9% of our operations, and animal care revenue and events contribute 8%. We would love to see our event revenue increase due to rising medical costs, but we need your help to get there.

If you’re interested in sitting on a volunteer committee or being part of a third-party fundraiser, contact Ashley Travis, Development & Communications Coordinator at atravis@peihumanesociety.com

Volunteer Application

Due to a large number of interested volunteers, we are unable to leave our volunteer application posted at all times. We will be reposting the volunteer application for a new round of volunteer intakes in the spring of 2022.

We thank all of those who are interested in volunteering with us.
