Are you considering a regular volunteer commitment at The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire? Come to one of our "Volunteer Informational" sessions and learn about the history of the League, our many and varied programs, our animals and our volunteering opportunities. At this event, you will have the chance to ask questions about the shelter and talk to active volunteers.
After the hour-long informational session, you can choose to apply to the volunteer program. At this time we will request a $10 donation and you will be given an application form. Why do we ask for a donation? This donation will not only support our mission but also exemplifies your commitment to the League. Once you have completed the application (bring a parent if you are 14-17) you will be scheduled for a more in-depth training in your area of interest. This will include a behind the scenes tour of the shelter and information on our volunteer scheduling system (Volgistics).
You do not need to register for the informational session, but please make sure you are familiar with the age, supervision, and documentation requirements listed on the right hand side of this page. Community Service volunteers should see our Day of Service Information at the bottom of this page.
Attending a Volunteer Informational session is the first step to volunteering at the Animal Rescue League of NH. Volunteer Informational dates are:
No date in December.
Saturday January 4th 9:30 am
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.
Are you completing community service hours?
For individuals that require less than 40 hours of community service we have set up a program just for you called the Day of Service! Community service volunteers in this program do not need to attend an volunteer informational session, but you must pre-register. As a community service volunteer you will not be working directly with the animals (due to training requirements).
Volunteers participating in the day of 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 clothing you can clean in and closed toed shoes.
Our next Day of Service dates are:
Various dates in December selling Christmas trees at the League. Must be on schedule to do this.
You must pre-register for this opportunity with your name, date of birth, email and phone number. We will also need a copy of your court order.
We will need to prepare your proof of community service and have the applicable waivers signed. The youth requirements to the right of this paragraph still apply. If you are between 14 and 17 please read those restrictions.
Contact Lgalletta@@rescueleague.org for more information or to register for the Day of Service.
