Volunteering With SAM

Are you looking for a way you can help animals other than fostering, donating or even interacting with animals??? Then you are in the right place! Here at S.A.M. we have a ton of ways you can volunteer. If you can tell us what you like doing we can find the right opportunity for you! There is a need for volunteers everywhere from helping out with the business side of the rescue, all the way to walking dogs. If you are interested in helping out at events when it fits into your schedule, that's an option too.
