Antioch Animal Services
Thank you for your interest in giving your time on behalf of Antioch animals! Our goal of promoting animal welfare and adoptions, as well as caring for our shelter animals, could not be accomplished without our generous volunteers! The gift of your time extends our resources and provides the human power necessary to support the people and animals in our community.
What do volunteers do?
There are many areas where volunteers help. Volunteers may walk dogs, socialize them and prepare them for adoption so they are ready when that special human comes to see them. Volunteers cuddle and play with cats to help calm them. Besides playing with animals, there are many other areas volunteers help with:
