Volunteering is good for the soul!

Not only will you make a difference in the lives of homeless animals but it's a great place to meet and connect with compassionate and creative people. Many long term friendships have started at The Rescue Train.

We welcome new volunteers throughout the year to jump on board The Train and help us make the world a kinder place. Once you are added to our volunteer e-mail list you will receive invitations for mobile adoptions, dog walking and local events where we need your help.

The Rescue Train is always looking for volunteers to participate in our annual Race For The Rescues, at The Rose Bowl in Pasadena. This life saving day raises funds for 10 nonprofit animal rescues and welfare organizations and holds dog and cat adoptions for two city shelters.

This race is held in October and pre-production begins as early as June. We need all kinds of help such as event coordination, publicity, soliciting sponsors, forming teams, social networking, fundraising, race set up, course marshals, registration, adoption set up, silent auction and dog and cat handlers. To learn more visit www.racefortherescues.org.
