Cottage Paws Rescue and Mission


Join a network of amazing volunteers that believe in the power of community and relationships! After all, animal lovers make great friends. Learn new skills, help spread the word about responsible pet ownership, find homes for animals in need and most of all - MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE in every life we touch. 

Can't Foster an animal right now? There is so much more that we need help with!

  • Help with an event - or two - or TWENTY! 
  • Help plan and organize events and fundraising
  • Help screen potential fosters / adopters
  • Transportation
  • Conduct home visits / reference checks
  • Walk, bath and play with dogs/cats/kittens/puppies!
  • Bake for bake sales and events
  • Craft things for fundraisers
  • ... and so much more!

Volunteering can be an incredible thing! However, It’s important to have BALANCE in your life. We provide ongoing support and communication with all of our volunteers and help you make a difference while attending to your personal life and those who matter most to you.

Whether you volunteer an hour a week or three hours a day - every bit helps. Each animal we help would not have had a chance without our Volunteers.
