Tucson Wildlife Center: Love wildlife? Here’s a volunteer opportunity for you. The Tucson Wildlife Center works with veterinarians, physicians, community volunteers, the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the University of Arizona to help wild animals recover from injuries or illness and get them back to the wild.

Interfaith Community Services: Make a difference in the life of a senior by spending time having fun with them. What do you like to do? Card games, puzzles, movies or shopping? You tell us what you like to do and we will find you a senior to join you. Interfaith Community Services serves all areas of Tucson and Pima County. Volunteer orientation and training required and provided.

Ronald McDonald House Charities: Volunteers are needed for the new “Caring Cart” at Diamond Children’s Medical Center. Run entirely by volunteers, the Caring Cart is wheeled from room to room, dropping off goodie bags with snacks as well as games or toys for the kids. Volunteers also remind families that the Ronald McDonald House is available for many families, depending on how far they live from the house, and the Ronald McDonald Family Room is open to every family with a child receiving treatment at the Diamond Children’s Medical Center.

Hermitage Cat Shelter: Lend a hand with adoption tours, helping prospective adopters fill out adoption paperwork and answering questions about the cats and the shelter. The shelter has adoptions at Petco on weekends and monthly off-site adoption events that could always use extra help.
