Public Volunteers

Interested in volunteering at the ARL but want to try it out first? Then public volunteering is for you!

As a public volunteer, you will work with staff to accomplish janitorial tasks around the shelter! All tasks, big or small, are equally important and each one contributes to the well-being of the pets in our care.

We will provide training on the job and you will be able to work in a variety of areas of the shelter.

If you are a student who need to complete less than 48 hours and would like to do so at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, please complete those hours by signing up for public volunteering shifts. 

Get started by signing up for a Public Volunteer shift on our events page, they're in blue. Click here to find a shift that works for you!
