The CAS Animals Need You!

Caring for our animal friends and working for a more compassionate world takes time and dedication, and the small CAS staff can’t do it alone! CAS depends on caring and enthusiastic volunteers to help with scooping poop, stuffing envelopes, painting barns, and much more.

Join us! 
You’ve got the skills, talents, and energy that we need.
And if you used to be part of the team, we want you back!

CAS is more committed than ever to providing volunteers with rewarding experiences. That’s why I’m so pleased to announce that I am the new manager of the CAS volunteer program! I can’t wait to get started matching volunteers’ interests and skills with CAS areas of need!
