Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Volunteer Program Application has temporarily been put on hold. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to welcome you to our Volunteer Team as soon as possible. Please visit our COVID-19 Resources Page for additional Faithful Friends Updates and operational changes.

Big hearts not required…but all our volunteers have them!

Faithful Friends relies greatly on the generosity of our volunteers 7 days a week! Flexible schedules are available both at our shelter and throughout New Castle County (with some Pet Therapy opportunities in Sussex County).

We can only provide the many animal welfare services that we offer thanks to the support of people like yourself, so we are very excited to get you started. Please review our Volunteer Opportunities and Requirements before you submit your application. For additional information, email volunteer@faithfulfriends.us or call (302) 427-8514 extension 102.
