volunteer match


There are so many rewarding ways to share your time helping animals. If you have volunteered in the past, and would like to become an active volunteer again, or know a friend or family member who wants to help, please let them know that we are in need of volunteers to spend a little time each week helping Second Chance Companions.


  • Take calls and email inquiries to help animals find homes
  • Provide a foster home for a pet in need
  • Assist with Fundraising and Special Events Booths
  • Work at the Petsmart Adoption Center (talk to potential adopters, clean cat cages)
  • Bag and/or deliver food for the Animeals program

Please call (360) 687-4569 or fill out a volunteer application if you are interested in volunteering.

Youth Have HEART

Do you have or know a kid in the Portland/Vancouver area who loves animals? Second Chance Companions has launched a youth volunteer program we call HEART (Helping Each Animal's Rescue Team)! Members help with regular and special events, fund-raising and simple projects. Kids learn responsibility, animal care, communication skills, and an important way to give back to our community. If you know of a kid who is interested, have them complete a HEART volunteer application today! Please contact Karen at 360-904-2207 if you have any questions about the program.
