Every day volunteers improve the lives of animals and play a vital role in the success of our local rescue organizations, which care for over 30,000 animals each year.

Volunteers enrich the lives of homeless pets while they wait for their forever families and help build a community where people value animals and treat them with respect and kindness.

Volunteering with FoMA
