Volunteer

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.

We most frequently need volunteers in the following areas:

  • Adoption Counseling (responding to calls and/or e-mail inquiries from people wanting to place or adopt pets, or wanting general information)
  • Provide a foster home for a pet in need
  • Assist with planning or staffing fundraising and/or special events such as information booths and community events
  • Work at the Petsmart Adoption Center (clean cat cages, talk to potential adopters)
  • Bag and/or deliver food for the Animeals program

If there is another area you have interest/experience in that is not listed, please get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do!

Please fill out a volunteer application or call (360) 687-4569 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. They 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.
