We're thrilled you're interested in volunteering with Best Friends - Atlanta. As a leader in animal welfare, Best Friends is working to Save Them All™. You can get started with your youth volunteer account below with the help of a parent or guardian.
A few things to note:
Best Friends in Atlanta allows individuals aged 12-17 to volunteer in our facility with a signed waiver by their guardian.
Volunteers ages 12-17 must have a guardian volunteering with them at all times.
There will be one guardian to one minor and both the youth volunteer AND guardian must each have a volunteer profile.
While the minimum age to volunteer in Atlanta is 12 years old, Best Friends will determine which - if any - positions are appropriate for youth volunteers.
If you are 15 or younger, your parent or guardian must create their own volunteer account first and will be required to approve your account.
Upon completion of these intake steps, you will receive a welcome email with important information about what to do next to begin volunteering. Please be sure to use an active email address, and check your spam filters for this email. If you do not receive this email within 24 hours of creating your account, please email volunteerATL@bestfriends.org.
