HOW VOLUNTEERS HELP

LifeLine could not thrive without the time and talents that volunteers contribute to our mission. Some of our volunteers work remotely to help get the pets we care for adopted and to spread awareness, some volunteers work in-shelter directly with our homeless pets, and others are involved in other essential organizational operations beyond animal care.
