Help a Homeless Animal – Become an AHeinz57 Volunteer!

Good volunteers are the key to everything, and AHeinz57 is blessed to have the very best. Our transport volunteers deliver animals from certain death to a warm safe and loving environment at our facility, the Pit Stop. Our Pit Stop volunteers clean them, feed them, care for them and prepare them for their temporary foster home. Our foster volunteers take them into their homes, love them, teach them manners, crate train them and love them some more. And our adoption and home visit volunteers ensure that they go to forever homes that can properly care for them and give them the life they deserve.  THANK YOU to those who serve us.

There are few things as rewarding as caring for a homeless animal. When you volunteer at AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport you’ll impact hundreds of lives and discover that a lick is the best thank you you’ll ever get.

Group or Business Volunteers:  Do you have a group or business that is interested in helping us out for a day or a few hours?  We always have work that needs to be done at our facility in DeSoto!   Click here to contact us regarding group volunteering!

How to Become a Heinz57 volunteer:

Fill out a volunteer application on our site.  Once completed our volunteer coordinator will contact you via email to set up a date for you to attend our volunteer orientation.

Volunteer orientations are held the 1st Sunday of every month from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM and pre-registration is required. Topics include an overview of our rescue, our program policies and procedures and the many opportunities available to our volunteers. If interested, volunteers will then schedule dates to shadow veteran volunteers for a short period of time until they feel comfortable taking on tasks of their own.

Orientations are held at the DeSoto United Methodist Church in DeSoto.  Our volunteer coordinator will let you know as your orientation date approaches.

Although we have no minimum requirements, we do ask that you donate at least 1 to 2 hours every month. For those of you who cannot make this type of commitment, we are also in need of event volunteers who are able to help at fundraising events held throughout the year.
