Save a Life.
4 Paws 4 Life offers an exciting volunteer program with a variety of opportunities. There are many benefits to volunteering: connection with others, shared purpose, physical and mental well-being, and getting to make a difference! There are some additional benefits to volunteering specifically with us, like puppy cuddles and watching animals transition to loving forever homes.
We love and appreciate our volunteers and would love to welcome you into our volunteer program. Fill out a volunteer application if you’d like to get started!
There are several types of volunteers we need.
You can walk dogs or help with chores at our facility in Sedalia, which is offered on a daily basis. You can assist us at adoption events, which typically occur 1-2x per month. You can also transport animals to and from events and the vet as needed. Sometimes we will need someone to handle one-off tasks that we need help with, and you are always welcome and encouraged to offer up any skills that you feel would be beneficial to our operation!
Anyone over 15 can volunteer on their own, and children 7+ may accompany their parent/guardian to volunteer. A prospective volunteer would fill out the volunteer application on our website, go through some online training, and attend one of our volunteer orientations prior to being fully onboarded as a volunteer. We typically hold volunteer orientations 1-2x per month at our kennel in Sedalia, where you will get a full tour of our facility as well as more information on our volunteer program as a whole. We utilize a simple and user-friendly volunteer software where you can sign up for shifts as well as track your hours.
