Are you considering a regular volunteer commitment at The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire? Please complete this online application. Once processed, you will be invited to attend one of our volunteer orientation sessions. At this session you will learn about the history of the League, our many and varied programs, our animals and our volunteering opportunities. You will also have the chance to ask questions about the shelter and talk to active volunteers and take a behind-the-scenes tour.
At the orientation will request a $10 donation.
Why do we ask for a donation?
This donation will not only support our mission but also exemplifies your commitment to the ARLNH and our volunteer training programs. At the end of orientation, you will be able to sign up for animal specific training.
Please make sure you are familiar with the age, supervision, and documentation requirements listed on the right hand side of this page.
Currently our biggest needs are Cat Cage Cleaners, Dog Kennel Cleaners, Dog Walkers and Small Animal Cleaners. All of these roles happen first thing in the AM, 7 days a week. We also need help at off site events and fundraisers which often occur on nights or weekends.
Community Service/Short-Term/Single Day Volunteers
For individuals that want to volunteer short term or a single day, we have set up a program just for you called the Day of Service! Short term volunteers must fill out this application. Once your application is processed, you will be eligible to register for day of service activities. You will receive and invitation and confirmation.
As a short term volunteer you will not be working directly with the animals (due to training requirements).
Volunteers participating in short term service will be doing odds and ends type activities. Tasks could include washing windows, empty animal crates, removing trash, bathrooms, vacuuming, organizing areas, restocking, putting donations away, weeding, and other cleaning type of projects. Please wear appropriate clothing and closed toed shoes.
Our next Day of Service dates are:
Monday November 24: 9am-1pm unloading Christmas trees at ARLNH
Various dates in December selling Christmas trees at ARLNH
YOU WILL BE INVITED TO ATTEND AFTER YOUR APPLICATION IS PROCESSED. Please do not just show up, you won't be permitted to stay.
For short term volunteers, the youth requirements to the right of this paragraph still apply. If you are between 14 and 17 please read those restrictions.
Court ordered community service volunteers will need to provide a copy of their court order prior to attending a day of service.
