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.
At this time, we are looking for volunteers for the following assignments. If you are interested, please complete the Volunteer Application Form.
Your application will be reviewed and PARL’s Community Engagement Coordinator will contact you through the email address you provided as soon as possible and as your availability aligns with current needs and openings. Volunteers accepted into the program may be required to complete online and/or in-person trainings before regular volunteering can begin. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
