How to help

If you care about animals, live in Washington, DC, Maryland, or Virginia, and want to help, you've come to the right place! Here are just some of the ways you can make this area a better one for both humans and pets.

Be a good animal citizen

Give financial support

  • Donate to your local animal shelter. Most shelters have need of supplies such as blankets, boxes, newspapers, and pet toys. All shelters welcome financial donations to keep them running.

Get involved

  • Volunteer at your local animal rescue organization or at MetroPets online. Check our volunteers' calendar of events page regularly.
  • Work in the animal field. See our extensive links to job boards.
  • Become an activist! Write letters, attend protests, make your voice heard where it counts.
  • Send us feedback! Tell us what we're doing right and what we're doing wrong, and how we can better serve the needs of the pet-loving community.
