Personal Information

Welcome & Thank You!

 THANK YOU for choosing to donate your time and talents to Paws for Life NC.  As a 100% all-volunteer organization, volunteers are the bedrock of what we do.  

 Our mission is to save or improves the lives of homeless cats and dogs through foster-based rescue operations.  It sounds simple, but there's a lot that that goes into saving lives.  That's why volunteers are so important--the more active, dedicated volunteers we have, the more we can do.  There are plenty of ways to get involved so, in the spirit of active volunteerism, we ask volunteers to give a minimum of 1 hour per month. 

You must be 18 years of age to submit this application.  (Minimum age for foster applications is 21 years of age). Any or all household members must be accounted for on this application and listed on the waiver later in this application. Any household member under the age of 18 must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of all volunteer events or activities. No drop-offs.  

Volunteers must be able to secure their own transportation to/from events or activities. We do not have the resources to provide transportation.

** Volunteer Service Hours ** Please do not submit this application if you are looking for service hours for yourself or your children. On an as-needed basis, service hours can be obtained through the following activities: independent supply drive, independent fundraiser, making hand-made "Thank You" notes, constructing feral cat enclosures, cleaning storage sheds, etc.  Please send all inquiries regarding service hours opportunities to volunteering@pawsforlifenc.org.
