Welcome to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria


The League is assisted by a vibrant corps of volunteers who help with everything from dog walking and cat socializing to wildlife transport and even gardening. Our volunteers provide all the “extras” that we need to keep our animals happy and our shelter humming. Never afraid to roll up their sleeves and tackle a new task, the League’s dedicated volunteers pitch in when and where they are needed most; sometimes at high-profile events and sometimes folding the mountains of laundry generated every day. Every task is important and we sincerely appreciate every volunteer hour.

Volunteering at the League is a two-way street. Volunteers give their time and talent and receive the love and affection of hundreds of animals (and humans!) in return.

The League does not have any adult volunteer orientation sessions scheduled for new volunteers at this time.

We are always seeking volunteers for the Foster Care Program. Click here to learn more about fostering animals for the League.

Volunteers under the age of 18 can participate in the Youth Volunteer Program. Click here for more information.

Please check back in the future to learn about more opportunities for new volunteers.
