Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Great Lakes Bay Animal Society (GLBAS). Volunteers for GLBAS are encouraged to get involved with projects and committees that they have an interest in and will enjoy. We provide the training for all volunteer positions, so no prior experience is require. Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

Foster Committee

Help save a life. Foster a pet. Foster Guardians provide a temporary home, daily care, and food for abandoned cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies in their own homes. Foster pets live as part of a family, instead of a shelter or on the street, while waiting to be adopted into their permanent home. GLBAS covers veterinary costs for the Foster Pet, guidance for Foster Guardians, and events for the adoptable Foster Pet to attend for exposure to adopters.
