Become an Animal Services Volunteer


Got love? Got time? 
Are you 18 years old or older?
Then we've got animals who need you!


We truly appreciate your interest in joining the volunteer team at Contra Costa Animal Services. We rely on our volunteers to support and supplement our shelter programs, and help us to provide the very best for the animals in our care. Just a few hours a week can make a big difference in the lives of our shelter pets!

Volunteer positions are available for adults age 18yrs and older. We ask for a minimum commitment of 8hrs/month for 6 months. Volunteers must be able to follow directions and communicate with staff, volunteers, and the general public with a friendly, can-do attitude.
