FOJA is a volunteer-operated organization. Through the generosity of the public and committed volunteers, we have been able to save 1000ʼs of animals. If you have interest in becoming a part of FOJA or supporting our programs, please contact us!


Volunteer opportunities fall into two categories: those that involve animals and those that don't. To volunteer with the animals we ask that you become a city approved volunteer so that you will be covered by their liability insurance. You must attend an orientation, get a city provided background check, and have an interview with shelter staff. For more information and to sign up for the orientation, please contact ACPS. For opportunities where animals are not present, such as tabling events, helping with our many fund-raisers, and working on donation drives, check out our calendar. It contains contact information for the organizers. We are always thrilled to have animal lovers helping FOJA and hope to see you soon!
