The Animal Rescue League Shelter & Wildlife Center (ARL) is very proud of the commitment and dedication of our volunteers. Over 500 individuals have chosen to help us come to the rescue of thousands of animals per year. We’re so glad that you’re interested joining them!

volunteerinternal1At our shelter, we have an enhanced safety and training program to provide new skills and learning, and to increase the adoptability of our animals. Our animal handling volunteers will become more skilled in understanding animal behavior and communications and how to help modify behavior problems and fearfulness.

At our Wildlife Center, volunteers receive hands on experience working with Pennsylvania’s native wildlife and have the satisfaction of helping these injured and orphaned wild animals, who probably would not survive otherwise.

Event and Outreach volunteers are responsible for the direct adoption of hundreds of animals each year. They help us to give homeless pets much needed publicity and spread the word about the great work done by the ARL.
