Volunteering with Independent Animal Rescue requires no special skills or experience—only a desire to help animals. At the heart of IAR is our foster program. Maintaining the foster program requires a large number of volunteers in many support roles. Even if you are unable to foster a cat or dog, we need your help.   Volunteers over 18 fill out the form below and we will be in touch. Volunteers under 18 must have a parent/ guardian complete the form and volunteer with you.

Please note that in order to foster you must be at least 21 years old, have permission from your landlord if you are renting and not be an undergraduate student.

Featured Volunteer Needs

FOSTER PARENTS are always needed—particularly in the spring, when lots of kittens and puppies are being born. IAR provides all food, medical care, supplies, and extensive training for foster parents.
