The majority of our fosters are based out of Los Angeles and Orange County. Fostering is a completely free experience with all materials provided. We will contact you as fosters are needed. Thank you for your support!
Committed, long-term volunteers are needed to fulfill the needs of our animals. Our rescue is completely comprised of volunteers, and we would love to add you to the A Wish for Animals family! We will contact you within 5 business days.
Volunteers are needed to transport our pups from San Diego to Los Angeles, Orange County to Los Angeles, and San Diego to Orange County once they are rescued! You must have reliable transportation and be willing to commit to communicating directly with your liasons to transport our pups.
All volunteers applying to assist in the rehabilitation of some of our more medically impaired animals must have one year prior experience working at another rescue, shelter, or veterinary clinic. These volunteers help administer vaccines, coordinate medications, and communicate with liasons as needed.
Adoption volunteers assist at our adoption events with scheduling, coordinating vaccine times, and ensuring that our checklist process runs smoothly. Qualified volunteers also assist in obtaining home check videos and contacting potential adopters.
Volunteer photographers help us create comprehensive profiles for each of our dogs on AdoptaPet. Media volunteers help collect photos of adoptables and alumni as well as coordinate the rescue social media.
If you have free time and live in the Los Angeles or Orange County area, we utilize errand-running volunteers to drop off supplies and medications, if needed, at our fosters' locations. You get to see some cute puppies and do some quick philanthropy!
A Wish for Animals is solely comprised of loving volunteers who truly want the best for our animals. If you think you can contribute in any way outside of the above categorizations, we would love to have you.
