Volunteering Opportunities with Homeless Animals Rescue Team

Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) in Fairfax, Virginia


The owner of Brown Automotive Group, LTD, William E. Schuiling gives back to the community through his support of several different philanthropic organizations. One of the organizations that William Schuiling supports is the Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) in Fairfax, Virginia.

HART largely operates through the help of volunteers, who assist in caring for and placing both dogs and cats. Much of the volunteer needs in relation to dogs involves fostering animals until permanent homes are found or assisting with weekly Dog Adoption Days. During these events, dogs have the chance to meet potential adopters, and volunteers are needed to look after the dogs and introduce them to interested individuals.

To help with cats, volunteers may consider fostering both adult and young cats, bottle-feeding kittens, or helping to clean cages. In addition, volunteers are needed to transport cats to veterinary appointments and follow up with families after they have adopted an animal. HART also holds cat and kitten adoption events that are staffed largely by volunteers.

In addition, individuals can volunteer at fundraising events or help collect items for silent auctions and similar initiatives.
