We love volunteers! Even one hour a week will help make a difference in the life of a homeless animal. Volunteers must be 16 years old. Here are some of the volunteer opportunities available:


  • Walk and socialize
  • Help at in-person adoption events
  • Bring dogs to ARF special events


  • Operation Cat – Be a caretaker for a feral cat colony
  • Socialize and bottle-feed young kittens in your home
  • Assemble litter boxes
  • FurKid Socialization Program – work one on one with shy and under socialized kittens/cats


  • Sales
  • Store display and design
  • Merchandise sorting and pricing
  • Learn more

If you have professional expertise (such as photography, retail, advertising or fundraising) that could be useful to ARF, please let us know!


Before beginning your volunteer journey at ARF, every volunteer is required to attend a brief orientation at the ARF Adoption Center, during which they will be introduced to ARF animals and staff members and given a brief training session on ARF rules and protocol.

Volunteers must be 16 years old or older (sorry, no exceptions).

Please complete the Volunteer Application below. Please bring it with you to your orientation or email them prior to your orientation to jake@arfhamptons.org.
