How You Can Help

Get involved with Ahimsa House! With a staff of only 4, we rely heavily on our network of volunteers to serve the animal and human victims of domestic violence in Georgia. Several of our ongoing volunteer opportunities are listed below. To apply, please submit a volunteer application.

Complete Volunteer Application »

Foster a Pet

We are always in need of animal foster volunteers to temporarily care for the pets in our program! Caring for someone’s much loved pet while they are unable is an incredibly rewarding experience. Ahimsa House fosters typically keep pets for around 2 months until their owners can get them back.

Transport Pets to Safety

Our amazing network of transport volunteers provide a huge service to the pets in our program, driving them to and from veterinary appointments and reuniting them their owners when they can get them back. Most transport needs are within metro-Atlanta but sometimes can be across the state.

Volunteer at Community Outreach Events

Throughout the year, Ahimsa House attends community festivals and other outreach events to promote program services and raise awareness of the link between domestic violence and animal cruelty. Community Outreach Volunteers attend and participate in various events across Georgia to help expand the reach of Ahimsa House.

Volunteer at Special Events

Unlike most of our volunteer opportunities, special events volunteers DO NOT need to submit a volunteer application or attend any formal orientation. These opportunities are great for large groups.

Answer our 24-hour Crisis Line

Helping people and pets escape domestic violence is an around-the-clock job – which is why Ahimsa House operates a 24-hour crisis line! Join our staff of crisis line volunteers to engage clients and help meet the needs of victims in your community.
