Lend a Helping Hand

Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation has various types of volunteer positions available including


We are always in search of new foster homes where a dog can be cared for and loved until a permanent home is found. Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation covers food, medical attention and all the supplies required for the dogs care. This is an incredibly rewarding experience. If you can open your heart and home to a foster dog please fill out our adoption application and put “FOSTER” for “Dog’s Name.”

Home Checks

Before someone becomes a new adoptive parent or a foster home, we conduct a home check. We are looking for volunteers with some previous experience in various locations across the Los Angeles area who can be available for home checks.


We are always looking for creative people who have ideas on how to increase our donations. As you can imagine our costs are extensive with all of the medical care we give and the transporting of the dogs from Asia. So if you have suggestions or would like to host a fundraiser for us please let us know.

Dog Walking and Cleaning

We welcome volunteers who can take the dogs for walks in the neighborhood and who are also willing to clean up the dogs’ living space. You can come anytime between 11-7pm seven days a week at our rescue in Sherman Oaks. There is no need to email or call us to let us know you are interested. Just come by and sign in! Hope to see you there.


We often need to transport dogs to appointments. We will cover your gas expenses if you can spare your time and vehicle to help us get these dogs their medical attention.


Are you a groomer? Some of these dogs come to us in such horrific condition, a bath and groom would go a long way to making them feel better, look better and smell better. We are looking for groomers willing to donate their expertise to help our dogs find their fur-ever families.
