Our volunteer program is committed to finding new ways of helping our friends here at the Animal Defense League. Volunteers help us give hope, love and companionship to homeless dogs and cats. Whether it is walking dogs, manning an information booth or helping in the Thrift Shoppe, our volunteers are helping to save dogs and cats in our community.
