Play a crucial role in the everyday operations of our rescue. 

From the day to day care of the animals in our facility to helping us run events to fostering in your home, volunteers are the key to keeping The Runaways going! 


Ways to help

Help From Home 

Foster an animal in your home!

  • We provide the essentials to care for them - food, medical care, and more. 

  • You provide the housing and love. 

  • They stay anywhere from a couple weeks to several months. (A brief moment in time for you but the most meaningful impact for them!)

Help In The Shelter/Events 

Spend time at the facility/community!

  • Spend a few hours with us helping animals in our building. 

  • Clean their living areas, give them enrichment, walk dogs, and more!

  • Shifts available 7 days a week to fit anyone's schedule. 

  • Bring your skills and talents to help The Runaways thrive and help more animals!

Cat Adoptions
I started volunteering at The Runaways Animal Rescue because I love animals and  I wanted to do something positive and give back.  I started once a week helping with dog care, because I’ve had dogs all my life and I am comfortable with dogs, and it has grown into a passion for me.  I love playing with the dogs and walking them, but I also enjoy cleaning their kennels and  making their rooms comfy and clean. I can’t express the joy I feel when I see one of these sweet souls being adopted!
