SOAR is currently open by appointment only. Please leave a message at 910-457-6340.


SOAR has many wonderful volunteers who work in many aspects of our rescue shelter. If you have some spare time and love animals, please consider becoming a volunteer.

Our Current Volunteer Needs Are:

Cat Room Helpers – Clean the cat rooms and kennels, socialize cats

Dog Walkers – Walk and socialize the dogs

Special Event Helpers – We do fundraisers and can always use help

Adoption Event Helpers – Help with animal transport, help at adoption event venues

There are many times when all of our regular volunteer positions will be filled, but we will often need help on a short term or intermittent basis.  In those instances, we will contact you if you have previously expressed an interest in volunteering.  There is no formal training involved.  Veteran and new volunteers will work together at the start.  Work schedules are flexible, but all volunteer duties are carried out in the AM.  You must be at least 18 years old to work as a SOAR volunteer.

Contact us today to get started!
