Providence Animal Rescue League is committed to helping animals and the people who love them. The work of our volunteers are essential to our efforts. Volunteers help care for animals, assist the community through free and affordable local events, and spread the word about our vital work. Our volunteers not only make a difference to PARL, but to the entire Rhode Island community.
PARL is not currently accepting any new volunteers for in-shelter animal care positions. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we catch up on orientations and training for the most recent group of new volunteers. Please check this page regularly to see when we have in-shelter animal care volunteer positions available again. Please reach out to email@example.com if you have any questions.
If you are interested in any of the following opportunities, please complete email firstname.lastname@example.org.
LAUNDRY AND DISHWASHING HELP:
Have some time one or more mornings a week to help with laundry and washing dishes? These tasks are vital in keeping animals happy, healthy, and comfortable. (This is also a great way to get to know our staff team and many shelter routines prior to in-shelter animal care volunteer opportunities opening up again in the future.)
PET FOOD PANTRY ASSISTANCE:
Assist community members at our Pet Food Pantry during open hours and/or help pack and prepare food and distribution kits.
BUILDING PROJECTS AND LANDSCAPING HELP:
Help with assorted building projects as needed (may include painting, cleaning, and light carpentry work; and/or help keep our grounds clean and tidy through leaf removal, shoveling, weeding, and landscaping).
PARL has a special volunteer track for those needing to complete Community Service hours for school, court, church, etc. To enroll in this program, you must be at least 18 years of age. We cannot work with volunteers that have been convicted of a violent crime/offense or an animal or child-related crime/offense.
