Community Outreach

The Community Outreach program provides community-based education and resources for pet owners in under-served communities. Outreach volunteers help distribute flyers, attend tabling events, bag dog food, perform data entry work and more. Community Outreach is not currently accepting new applications.

Kindest Cut Spay/Neuter Clinics

Volunteers with Kindest Cut assist with client interactions and surgical materials preparation for low-cost spay and neuter services at our Melrose Animal Clinic in Golden Valley. Apply here.

Group volunteer opportunities

Your group can support our work and the animals in our care by coordinating and participating in offsite group service projects (like making toys, collecting and donating items from our “wish list,” or holding a fundraiser). Learn more about group volunteering at AHS.
