Creative Animal-Lovers, We Need You!

Your creative talent could help make a big impact for our homeless pets.

We are in search of creative souls who enjoy photography and creative writing to help place pets into foster homes and help with adoptable photos. Become a volunteer today by taking our online orientation.

Creative Writing

Are you passionate about creative writing and pets?

If you answered “yes” to both, we could use your help with writing creative and inspirational pet bios for our pets who are in search of foster homes. A well-written foster pet bio will speak to the heart of people willing to take in a pet while he or she heals and prepares for adoption. Due to limited resources, we are not able to get all pets onto our Foster Portal, so volunteers are crucial. The more pets we have on our Foster Portal, the more we can get them out of the shelter and into loving foster homes. Become a volunteer today!

Foster Pet Photographer

Paw up if you love taking pet photos!

As a Foster Pet Photographer, you’ll help take photos of our foster pets in the shelter so that potential fosters can see available foster pets on our Foster Portal webpage. The more pets we can photograph and place on our portal, the more we can place into loving foster homes. No professional photography experience required and we provide the camera equipment. Become a volunteer today!

Photography Studio Assistant

Ever wonder how professional photographers capture those amazing pet photos?

Here’s your chance to see how! Become a Photography Assistant volunteer and you’ll work as an assistant in AHS’ photography studio. Please note that you will not be photographing the pets, but, you’ll play an important role in the photography process. You’ll assist our professional photographers with preparing pets for their big photo opp, assist the photographer with pet placement for photos, and even perform silly antics to help the pets look at the camera. Each adoptable animal photo is posted on our website, ensuring love-at-first-sight possibilities for potential adopters. The work in this area is vital to placing animals in new homes.
