But we can’t do it alone – that’s where YOU come in! Whether you’re a seasoned animal lover or just beginning your journey, there’s a place for you in our volunteer family. From helping to care for the animals, to helping with adoption events and fundraising efforts, every pair of helping hands counts.

Why Volunteer with Us?

The impact you’ll have on these animals’ lives is immeasurable, and the gratitude in their eyes is a reward like no other. Ready to join our volunteer team and become a hero for animals in need?

We welcome younger volunteers.  For the safety of our dogs and everyone involved, teenagers 14-15 years old must have an adult present while volunteering at the rescue center.  Teenagers 16-17 years old may volunteer, but everyone under 18 years old must have their legal guardian sign a permission slip/release.  We are sorry, but we generally cannot accept volunteers under 14 years old at the rescue center. If younger volunteers want to get involved in other ways, please feel free to email us at volunteers@itvrescue.org.

ALL volunteers (community service included) are required to review ITV’s Volunteer Handbook and complete a short 10-question quiz, showing your review of the handbook. Volunteers are also requested to purchase our RED volunteer t-shirt (cost $20), which is available at the rescue center during open hours.  There are THREE steps to follow to begin your volunteer experience with ITV:

  1. Sign up with Civic Champs and complete the volunteer application by clicking “Sign Up To Volunteer” below.
