Thank you for showing interest in volunteering with Berkeley Animal Care Services; we appreciate your want to help the animals and look forward to seeing you around the shelter! Currently, we have a slight backlog of new applicants to work through. While we process the new applicants, we unfortunately have to put the applications to the Volunteer Program on a temporary hold. We need to make sure we are setting you up to help as effectively and efficiently as we can.

We will be accepting new volunteers again July 2024, so please check back. If there is a pressing issue or question we can help with, feel free to email the program at BACSVolunteer@berkeleyca.gov.  

On behalf of the animals, thank you!  



Monica Holland

Berkeley Animal Services Volunteer Coordinator
