Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet other animal lovers like yourself!

Southwest Metro Animal Rescue has various volunteer opportunities available. You can volunteer as much or as little time as you would like. If you have another area in which you would like to help, let us know! We would love to hear your ideas! We are an all-volunteer non-profit organization. We do not have any paid staff and receive no government funding. Our founding members have over 35 years combined experience in the animal rescue field.

Southwest Metro Animal Rescue does not operate a shelter building, and is a volunteer foster home-based organization that hosts regular scheduled monthly Pet Adoption Days. Our procedure is to evaluate the animal, provide necessary medical care (including spay/neuter), place in a caring foster home, and finally find a suitable forever home for each pet. We rely on donations of food and supplies to care for the pets. We maintain a no-kill policy except in cases when euthanasia is deemed the only viable, reasonable and humane option.
