Welcome to the Little Victories Animal Rescue Volunteer page. Being a volunteer is extremely rewarding, educational, exciting and fun. Walking a dog, socializing with a cat, providing a clean shelter environment, or even giving an animal a bath or pat on the head, can have a huge impact on the lives of all our shelter animals. It is rewarding to see how dogs and cats respond to the love they receive while they are at the shelter. Our Volunteer Program was specifically created to support staff in completing our rescue mission. We would like to thank you for choosing to participate in our program. As a volunteer, you are an asset to our organization and to the many dogs and cats that need loving homes. We hope that the time you spend here will be as rewarding to you as it is to the animals you care for. Little Victories Animal Rescue is a No-Kill, non-profit 501 (c)3 organization. As a result, we recognize the value of your time and thank you for giving your time as a volunteer to help change the life of an animal in need. Here you will find information on what it means to be a volunteer and any requirements or restrictions that may apply to you, as the health and welfare of our animals is our number one priority.

Learn how to talk to the animals
One of our volunteers helped bring a very shy dog named Wilson out of his shell. After being traumatized, Wilson, a Great Pyrenees or Pyrenees mix, hid under his house or inside his house, afraid to come out. Many volunteers worked with him. You can volunteer to make a difference in a dog’s life, too—just by offering love and “listening!”
