Want to volunteer in Pittsburgh?

CARMAA would not be able to accomplish our mission without the support of people like you. Outreach volunteers make it possible to go into the community and show people how to help homeless animals. Whether it’s at a CARMAA hosted event such as DogtoberFEST, or one of our many fundraisers and off-sites throughout the year, helping hands are always needed. If you have the heart to make a difference, we can guide you through the rest.

When you become a CARMAA volunteer, you’re giving the animals what they want and need most: a voice. Whether you volunteer for a day, a week or longer, the animals truly appreciate the time you spend helping to spread the message of adoption.

Don’t Live in the Greater Pittsburgh Area?

No matter where you live, you can volunteer to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. There are animal rescues, shelters, sanctuaries and assistance groups throughout the country and right in your own neighborhood that could use your help. A few minutes and a Google search can help point you in the right direction.

Below are just a few ideas of things you can do to help homeless animals in your area:

  • Volunteer to work with the animals at your local animal shelter
  • Contribute items on a group’s “wish list.” These are often found on the group’s website and may include:
  • Money
  • Blankets
  • Newspapers
  • Cleaning Supplies
  • Food
  • Kennel supplies like bowls or beds
  • Adopt your next “furever” family member from a rescue, shelter or sanctuary
  • Spay and neuter your pets, and do not allow your pets to roam the neighborhood
  • Use social media to circulate information about pets in need of homes
  • Participate in local fundraisers held by animal groups
  • Help keep a pet in his or her home by offering to help out an elderly or sick neighbor with caretaking such as walks, litter box cleanup, yard cleanup and socialization of their pets.
  • Foster animals for your local rescue or animal shelter
