Animal Disaster Services is always looking for dedicated volunteers. Volunteers are expected to attend meetings, trainings, events, and activities. Volunteers are expected to provide a calm and safe environment for each other and the animals in our care in emergency evacuation shelters. Shelter duties may include set up and take down of shelter equipment and supplies, completion of paperwork, cleaning, feeding, dog walking, and playtime.
A.D.S. does provide services under the direction of Yavapai County Emergency Management. All volunteers must complete the county's intake process, including a background check.
Our volunteers make this all possible! Volunteers donated a combined 785 hours in 2022 and 966 hours in 2023.
Beginning August, 2023, General Volunteer Meetings are held the third Tuesday of February, April, June, August, and October at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, you are more than welcome to attend a meeting. Click the Become A Volunteer button below and let us know you plan to attend in the event there are any scheduling changes.
Upcoming meeting information can be found on our Calendar page or, for more information, please contact Lisa Bird at LisaBird.ADS@gmail.com.

Animal Disaster Services has recognized Carol Vogel as the 2023 Volunteer of the Year.
Carol brings so much enthusiasm to the organization as a Board Member and in her role as Event Coordinator. She has and continues to surpass all expectations.
If you haven't met Carol at one of the many events she attends on behalf of Animal Disaster Services throughout the year, be sure to stop by and say "hi!"
