The HAL Volunteer Program is the cornerstone of all our work. HAL Volunteers are our most valuable asset. Without volunteers, the cost of rescue work would increase exponentially.

What can be more rewarding then interacting with animals and receiving their unconditional love? You contribution of time and talent can help save precious lives!

Whether you would like to open your home to an animal in need or if you just have a couple of hours of spare time every other day or weekend, WE NEED YOU! We have many volunteer opportunities to suit many different lifestyles, skills and interests!

It is vitally important that each volunteer realize that his or her piece is critical to the success of our rescue work.
