We are always in need of innovative ideas to help raise
money and awareness of the SNAP program. SNAP relies on our
all-volunteer staff to accomplish our mission, so we would be
very pleased to have you aboard! If you choose to join our
family of volunteers, you will be rewarded with a deep sense
of satisfaction from knowing you are saving lives and ending
the suffering of so many homeless animals.
Please print out a
form and return it by mail as
soon as possible, so that we can match your interests and
skills with the many volunteer opportunities available. Also,
if you know any other animal lovers who you think would like
to help, we ask that you share this information with them and
encourage them to submit applications, too! We look forward
to working with you to end animal homelessness!

carry out their own fundraisers. We have more than 200 ideas
for fundraisers for children, adults, individuals or groups.

or services for recognition at our events and in our
