Eleventh Hour Rescue - Volunteer

Become part of our lifesaving Volunteer Team!

Feed your passion for saving the lives of helpless animals by joining our AMAZING volunteer team! You will meet some of the most passionate animal lovers in our area that are deeply dedicated to saving the lives of animals that almost didn't get a chance for a TOMORROW. 

Eleventh Hour Rescue simply could not exist without our team of outstanding volunteers.  Other than a very small staff at our kennel and Rockaway Cat Adoption Center, the organization is run by our exceptional, dedicated, enthusiastic, first-rate, caring and selfless volunteers.  As a volunteer-run animal rescue, we rely heavily on the efforts of our volunteers in all aspects of the organization.

We have opportunities for you to help as much as your schedule allows in EVERY area of our organization.
