How to become a FOTAS Volunteer

There are many opportunities for volunteering with Friends of the Animal Shelter.

Please attend a New Volunteer Orientation to hear about our current volunteer opportunities, and figure out which activity will work best for you!


1st Saturday of the month
1:00 – 2:00 PM
Jackson County Animal Shelter
5595 S Pacific Hwy 99, Phoenix
between Talent and Phoenix

Space is limited, so please let us know you’re coming by calling (541) 774-6651, or email us to confirm we have room at the next New Volunteer Orientation.  Thank you!

We have many options – and we have Mentors who will help you feel comfortable and competent quickly.


We would love to have more Spanish-speaking volunteers to help out as Adoption Ambassadors.  If you’re bi-lingual and comfortable talking with people, we need you!
