Want to help DPA save more lives?

We need volunteers in many areas, such as fostering, medical, administration, adoptions, Trap Neuter Release (TNR), event volunteers, Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS), marketing and more.

Our mission is to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals.
