With an all-volunteer Board of Directors, A VOICE FOR PAWS truly recognizes and deeply appreciates the commitment of time and energy of our volunteers. Volunteers help us raise funds, they enrich the lives of our animals, and they help spread the word about the importance of our non-profit’s work to give a better/improved quality of life to animals in need in Gloucester County and surrounding areas.

While we are based in Gloucester County, New Jersey, volunteers from all over the world can help us by holding fundraisers or making individual donations to help our organization meet our goalsl. Locally, we need helping hands on a number of levels (See attached A VOICE FOR PAWS Volunteer Application). It is the commitment and generous support of individuals like you that makes it all possible.

If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please respond by email to or fill out the Volunteer Application and return it to: A VOICE FOR PAWS, INC., PO Box 525, Glassboro, NJ 08028.
