Both the Santa Monica Animal Shelter and the Friends of the Santa Monica Animal Shelter (FOSMAS) accept volunteers and need as much help as they can!
Volunteering with the Friends of the Santa Monica Animal Shelter:
FOSMAS is always looking for volunteers that want to participate and help us on our projects. This can range from helping design a flyer or handout to helping out at events. We’re interested in hearing from any Santa Monica-based resident who wants to become involved. Please email email@example.com and put VOLUNTEER in the subject line, and tell us why you want to volunteer and what skills you have to offer.
Event Planning & Management
Volunteering with The Santa Monica Animal Shelter:
The Santa Monica Animal Shelter is run by the Santa Monica Police department, and any volunteers at the shelter have to go through an approval process. After that is completed, there are various tasks around the shelter for volunteers to become involved in, including working with the animals. A PDF of the Santa Monica Animal Shelter application form can be found here. Please email the completed application to Kathy.Rios@smgov.net.
