They are our pets, our best friends, our companions. They’re also incredibly important members of our environment and while volunteering at an animal shelter is the most popular opportunity people think about when considering volunteering with animals, there are many ways our members can help pets and wildlife. There are in-person and virtual opportunities to help our animal friends.

  • Pet Therapy Day

    Our partner, FurKids, will bring 4-5 puppies/ dogs to interact and play with the elders for a little pet therapy. Pet Therapy provides emotional, mental, and physical benefits to the elders. Volunteers will assist the elders as they interact with the animal. Volunteers must be 10 and older.

  • Boo at the Zoo

    Pebble Tossers is once again participating in Boo at the Zoo. This is one of Zoo Atlanta’s most fun events of the year. Volunteers 10 and older may greet visitors, hand out treats, assist with crafts and carnival games, guide the costume characters around the Zoo, or otherwise help provide a spooktacular experience for guests of all ages.

  • NonPebble Tossers Opportunities

    Dog for a Day Program
    LifeLine Animal Project’s  Dog for the Day program is a great way to give the pups a break from the shelter environment and get them seen by potential adopters! You can take one of the pups to the park, go for a hike, or simply relax in your home. The potential for fun is endless! Must be 18+ to receive a dog. 

    Weekend Warrior
    LifeLine Animal Project’s weekend plan. Pets eligible for this program primarily include medium to large dogs. We ask that you commit to at least three days: pick up on Friday and drop off on Sunday. You are more than welcome to keep the dog as long as you’d like after that. We’ll provide you with a crate and food for the weekend!

     

    NOTE: Pebble Tossers members can receive service hours for participating in these two projects. To record hours use the NonPebble Tossers Service Opportunity option.
