Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Poquoson Animal Welfare Sanctuary!  There are various ways to get involved, and our volunteers are the lifeblood of animal rescue.  P.A.W.S. is a non-profit organization that relies on public support in the form of volunteers and donations.  And just look at all the fun we have working together! 


We welcome any volunteers between 12 and 16 years old, as long as they are accompanied by a parent due to liabilities.


If you are interested in volunteering, please e-mail us at, or fill out the form below.  One of our pawsome volunteer coordinators will get back to you as soon as possible!  You will be asked to fill out our volunteer packet and attend training sessions before beginning to volunteer.


Success! Message received.
