Get Involved



Our organization could not exist without volunteers. As a private, nonprofit organization, we rely on the assistance of caring and hard-working volunteers in all of our programs. We rely on our volunteers to host offsite adoption events each week, walk the dogs, and to operate our Have A Heart Thrift Shop. There are numerous ways to volunteer your time so we can save more dogs and cats from the Kill List.

You MUST be 18 years old or older to volunteer in the shelter. If you are over 16, you can volunteer at our offsite events.

If you are seeking community service hours for a pending or completed court case, please contact us at 706-569-6040. Do not fill out a volunteer application or register for volunteer orientation.

Volunteers are required to:

  • attend an orientation
  • commit to a minimum of 6 hours of volunteer work per month
  • treat animals in our care with kindness and concern for their welfare
  • represent themselves and AAR in a professional manner and treat clients, staff, and other volunteers with respect
  • purchase an Animal Ark Rescue t-shirt for $20

if under 18 :

  • see the Read-n-Purr program – Designed for elementary students to read and socialize with our cats
  • if 16-18, you can volunteer at our offsite events
