Volunteers are ALWAYS needed and welcome.

PAWS for Life is heavily dependent on our fantastic volunteers, which means we are looking for committed volunteers who are ready to make a difference and join the fun!

Volunteers make everything we do possible. Would you like to join our PAWS volunteer team? Please join us for the required Volunteer Orientation on Saturday, April 10th at 11:00 am.
Volunteer applications can be found on our website www. pawspueblo.org or at the shelter.
Once you attend our orientation we will find a volunteer position that is right for you. Pack Walk, socializing with the animals, playing with the dogs in the yard practicing basic commands, playing with cats, cleaning, filing, preparing treats and community service bags, offsite events (Bingo), FUNdraising … the list goes on. There are many rewarding opportunities for everyone.
Please email lisa@pawspueblo.org to rsvp or if you have any questions.
We hope to see you there!

Volunteer of the Month


We honestly can’t say enough good things about March Volunteer of the Month Mickey Marion! She is not only one of our most dependable Pack Walkers; she also volunteers at our Photo Booth events to pose with our shelter pups and is always willing to lend a helping hand whenever the need should arise. Please help us in congratulating this special lady and friend to PAWS. Mickey, we are so lucky to have you as part of our PAWS Team!

Volunteer Orientation Event

Attending a volunteer orientation is the first step in becoming a volunteer here at PAWS for Life. Before anyone can start volunteering, they must attend this one-time orientation. Here you will learn the basics of being a volunteer and will be trained in handling dogs and cats.
Whether you choose to work directly with the animals, participate in our Tuesday & Saturday Packwalks, or assist with other tasks around the building, your participation and time will have a positive impact on our shelter and the animals. We love our volunteers and wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you! For more information or to confirm attendance and time.

Our Heartfelt Thanks to All of Our Volunteers

Thank you to the many volunteers coming into our PAWS shelter every day to help care for our wonderful pets in waiting.  Also, thank you to those who help with our fundraising, adoptathons, and who foster many of our pets in waiting.  You are truly a blessing to our organization and we would be unable to function without you!
