Pet Angel relys on Volunteers to be able to take care of our kitties, clean the rescue each day, and be apart of our boards and committees that run the rescue. Our Team of Angel's consist of community members of all ages and backgrounds that have one thing in common: A love for the cats who need it most!
Pet Angel is always looking to add more people to their team of Angels! Whether you're retired, a group of scouts or a school club, a sorority or fraternity from a local college, a family who wants to teach their children about volunteering, a High School student looking for volunteer hours, in need of community service hours ordered by the court, or just a heart who wants to love the kitties who need it most... we want you!
We have two different types of volunteers. You can choose one or the other, or you can be both!
Cleaning Shifts: This is where we need the most volunteers! Our cleaning shifts are twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Once you are trained by another volunteer, you sign up for whatever shift works with your schedule, making volunteering at Pet Angel flexible for everyone! Cleaning shifts take about 2 hours, and involves sweeping and mopping cages and rooms, scooping/ replacing litter boxes, providing fresh food and water, replacing any soiled bedding, wiping down furniture/ walls, loading and running the washer and dryer and administrating medication to the kitties that need it that day. Of course, once your cleaning is done, you get to play, groom and cuddle with all the kitties! Anybody of any age can do cleaning shifts, but if you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent or guardian inside the rescue with you during cleaning shifts (most cleaning shifts, our office staff is not here.)
Fundraising Committee and Event Volunteers: We are privately owned, non-profit, 5(0)1(c)(3). This means that we are not state funded. We depend on the donations from the public, as well as the funds our fundraising committee raises each year. We are always looking to add driven and dedicated people to our fundraising committee, as well as volunteers who would like to work events that we do as volunteers. Each year we have a silent auction, sell T-Shirts at the Balloons Over Bavarian Inn Hot Air Balloon Event, sell our cookbook at the Kris Kringle Market in Frankenmuth, as well as other miscellaneous events throughout the year. If you're interested in fundraising, or working events to help us raise funds for our never-ending vet bill, we love to have you on board!
We are always happy to work with groups! In the past, we have worked with sorority's, faternity's, scout troops, school clubs, day cares, businesses, even nursing homes for a fun volunteer day at the rescue! If your group or club is interested in doing a service day at the rescue, please reach out to Pet Angel directly to talk about projects and set up a service day! We'd love to have you in!

No matter the type of volunteer you sign up to be, you're making a difference.
