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.
Due to a large influx of new volunteers in recent months, we are not currently accepting any new volunteer applications. Please check back regularly as we'll updated this space when we are accepting new volunteers once again. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
Need to complete community service hours to meet a specific requirement? Please complete a Community Service Inquiry Form instead of the Volunteer Inquiry Form. Please note, this section is for one-time or special volunteer project needs, not for a regular volunteer shift at our shelter.
We are looking for dedicated animal lovers to join our foster team and provide temporary care for our animals in the comfort of their own homes. Fostering with PARL can be a short commitment (a few days to 3 weeks) or a long commitment (3 weeks to a few months) depending on what you are interested in. Learn more
