Volunteer Information



Please read through our policies before making the commitment to our rescue.

A brief description of our volunteer positions.

Fill out our online volunteer application.


PAWS volunteers all share the values of professionalism, responsibility, compassion, commitment, integrity, and accountability with our community and shelter partners. These values are exhibited through:


  • Promoting responsible pet ownership daily including licensing, vaccinations, and spaying and neutering.

  • Promoting compassion towards animals.

  • Sharing the PAWS Mission.

  • Promoting Adoption.




We need help processing applications and following up with past adopters. This is normally done by phone call. Question prompts are provided.


We need help transporting dogs to our spay clinic in Davidsonville, MD every couple of weeks. We also need help with transport from our large rescue groups in the South. If you're planning a family vacation, just take some of our crates with you!

Donation Collectors

We are always in need of new donations. Purina ProPlan Puppy and Adult Food, Bowls, Leashes, Toys, Puppy Pads, Newspapers. It can be as simple as sitting out a donation bin at work, networking online with your friends and family, or or sharing our Amazon Wish List.

Social Media Networker

Anyone can do this! Go to our facebook page, PAWS Rescue, and share our posts all over facebook! There are about a dozen pages that we share our posts to. They then need to be bumped daily. We also could use someone to share stuff on other social networks like Twitter, Google+, or any place you already use.
