Volunteer and foster opportunities

FOSTER OPPORTUNITIES:

Because The Ark does not have an animal shelter building, the need is great for places to keep our animals until we can find their forever homes. If you have room for a dog or cat in your home, it's one of the best ways that you can volunteer. Foster homes usually keep their animals for a period of a couple of weeks to a couple of months, until they are adopted. It's easy - we pay for all of the animal's healthcare, food, and supplies. All you have to do is provide a loving temporary home!


Fostering is a very fulfilling way to help out. If you've thought about adopting a pet, but aren't quite sure what breed is best for you, fostering is a wonderful way to try out different types of animals and determine whether they are suitable for your lifestyle. You are providing a safe environment for the pet to stay in and increasing its socialization.


If you think you'd be interested in fostering one of our homeless animals, please email us at info@arkofsanjuan.org or call 949-388-0034 and we'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

The Cattery

Volunteers help inside The Cattery at the San Juan PetSmart two times a day, one am shift (between 8-10am), and one pm shift (between 5-8pm).
Tasks include removing the cats from the cages, cleaning cages, litter etc, providing food, and playing with cats. Training is provided and we are in need of both regularly scheduled volunteers and substitutes.

Data Entry / Scheduling

Updating The Ark's animal database, scheduling animal shots and spay and neuter appointments, bookkeeping.

Fundraising

Fundraising is a vital part of our organization as we receive no governmental funds. Serving as a member on the Fundraising Committee and assistance at Fundraising Events are both very needed.

Transport Adoptable Animals

Most often needed for to and from adoption events and veterinary appointments.

Staff Cat Adoption Events

Held on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at The Cattery in the San Juan PetSmart, volunteers give out Ark information, allow potential adopters to interact with the cats, and answer questions. Training is provided.

Staff Dog Adoption Events

Held on Saturdays at various locations in San Juan. Volunteers set up, give out Ark information, answer questions, accept adoptive applications, and tear down at the end of the event. Training is provided and these events are vital to finding the animals homes.

Staff Booth at Community Events

The Ark participates in a number of community events, such as the San Juan Summer Nites concerts, Bark, Biscuit and Brew, Low cost spay and neuter clinics and so on. All of these need Ark representatives to promote our organization and provide information to the community.
