Your Time: More Than a Pet Shelter Volunteer

Are you passionate about animals but would like to be more than just a typical pet shelter volunteer? If so, VOCAL is for you.

We are looking for people from our community just like you who want to make a difference in the lives of local dogs and cats. As you may have figured out by reading our website, we are not your typical pet rescue organization.  In fact, VOCAL is not a pet shelter.

But if you have worked as a pet shelter volunteer or you have a passion for animals, we’d love to have you volunteer with us at VOCAL. We have a variety of volunteer positions available that involve working directly with animals. Our volunteers are a valuable part of all that we do here at VOCAL.

Fostering Pets

We are always in need of foster homes for dogs and cats. If you love pets but are unable to commit to keeping them for long periods of time, pet fostering may be for you. This could work perfectly for seasonal residents of Marion County and Ocala, perhaps those who are just here during the winter and early spring.

Vet Tech/Surgical Assistant

Here at VOCAL we believe that by offering affordable spay and neuter services, we can really help a community alleviate issues of pet overpopulation and homeless pets. As part of this effort, we are looking for volunteers for vet tech and surgical assistant positions. If you have any experience in this area, we’d love to talk to you.

Adoption Events

If you have worked as a pet shelter volunteer or have previously worked with pets, we’d love to have you help us with pet adoptions events. We’re always looking for eager volunteers to help in showing pets, as well as transporting them to and from these events.
