Our small staff is extremely dedicated. We also rely on volunteers to help us with making the Greenbelt Animal Shelter the best it can be!
Our volunteers apply their unique skills and passions to the shelter in many different ways. For example: social media outreach, events planning, fundraising, organizing, dog walking, cat socializing, fostering and the list goes on and on. Our animals benefit from every positive human interaction they have. We are not about setting limits on how you may contribute to our program. If you would like to sit in our cat room and pet a cat after a rough day at work, you aren't only making yourself feel better but you are interacting with an animal that may have otherwise been missing attention.
There are dozens of volunteer opportunities throughout the year through our Public Works Department. Click Here for Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities.
If you’re passionate about helping people and looking for a volunteer opportunity with a visionary humanitarian organization, you can make a difference with the American Red Cross in the National Capital Region.
