Volunteer

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Volunteer Program Application has been temporarily removed from our website. We are accepting new volunteers in a limited capacity. If you are interested in volunteering, please read the Volunteer requirements below and contact our Volunteer Manager at volunteer@faithfulfriends.us to hear about the next steps!

Please visit our COVID-19 Resources Page for additional Faithful Friends Updates and operational changes.

Last updated 10/28/20.

Virtual Volunteer Orientations are available at this time.

Please contact our Volunteer Manager at volunteer@faithfulfriends.us to receive more information about these online sessions and upcoming dates. If you prefer to wait for in-person orientations to resume, please reach out and you will be added to our waitlist to be contacted when our in-person orientations can safely resume.


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.
