Group Volunteering


Whether it’s a boy/girl scout troop event, work outing for coworkers, or a group of students looking to enrich the lives of animals; we have a volunteer opportunity for you!

Once your group has gone though our brief orientation and tour of our Adoption & Education Center, we will help you find the right volunteer opportunity for your group!

We accept volunteers in areas such as animal enrichment/socialization (dog walking, reading to cats, one-on-one time etc.), helping our caretaking team clean, and fundraising/event participation!

Please note; we require any person under the age of 16 to be accompanied by an adult who has also gone through our training orientation.

We offer group volunteer training orientations for groups of 5-25 people.

Please contact QCAWC Community Outreach Coordinator to schedule a group volunteer orientation.
