We are located in West Orlando, off of Clarcona Ocoee Road, near Hiawassee Road.


We are searching for volunteers who are driven and able to commit to volunteering.

We have morning, afternoon, and early evening shifts available every day of the week.

More information regarding volunteer tasks are viewable below. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the volunteer application.

Volunteer Program

There are a number of volunteer opportunities at SCARS, including, but not limited to, dog walking, bathing the dogs, cleaning and sanitizing crates, kennels and the facility, leash training, basic training, and playtime with the animals. 


Due to training, we ask our volunteers to commit to volunteering at least 2 times a week (3-hour shifts) for at least 3 months. This base total comes out to 72 hours.

Training will count as volunteer hours for volunteers in need of community service hours. 

Our volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Anyone under the age of 18 will require a completed parental consent form.
