    While caring for homeless animals and placing them in loving homes is the backbone of what we do, we go much further. Our groundbreaking programs help kids who are struggling to read gain confidence through the simple act of reading to a dog, help keep guardians and beloved pets together in times of financial hardship or illness, provide a safe space for people with disabilities to interact with animals, and so much more.

    Teen Camp Assistant (TCAs) volunteers support summer camp staff and act as role models as they guide campers in crafts and games, engage campers in lessons, and assist with animal guests. TCAs enjoy working with children and animals, are good team players, and are enthusiastic self-starters.
