- You can come any time between 9-4 to volunteer.
- You can donate as little or as much time as you want, even if it is only a few hours.
- Wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.
- You can complete your community service hours at MHAA. We document community service for school, church, or court ordered community service. If you want to do your court ordered community service with us, you must first speak to Audrey, our Shelter Manager.
Children of all ages are welcome as volunteers, as long as they are accompanied at all times by their parents. We believe that the best start to a lifetime of volunteering is to start young!
Current Volunteer Opportunities
As the Spring gets underway, we have many exciting activities coming up at Mid Hudson Animal Aid. Below is a list of upcoming events -- and we need your help! Please let us know if you're interested in volunteering in any of the following activities and we'll get back to you with further information. If you can't volunteer, perhaps you'd like to come to the event and bring your friends and/or family!
Volleyball Tournament, Memorial Park, Beacon. Sat – Sun, June 29-30, Beacon Memorial Park. Several volunteers needed both days to help with a variety of functions as well as advertising this ahead of time to get players / teams. Shifts will be available. More information to come.
4th Annual Golf Tournament, Dutchess Golf Club, Poughkeepsie. Monday, July 29. This is large fundraiser for us and we need "a ton" of volunteer help prior to the event and at the event. Know someone that owns a business or do you have businesses that you frequent that might want to be one of our sponsors? We need your now NOW to solicit sponsors for the event, solicit raffle and silent auction items, hand out brochures and advertising this to people you know who play golf - and ask them to sign up, and then we'll need help on July 29 at the event. More details on this will be sent to you if you're interested in helping with any aspect of this event. And there's a dinner-only option if you're interested in just attending the auction / dinner as a guest.
If you want to help at any of these events or want copies of the flyers or posters for the events to pass around the friends or family, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
