Brooklyn Animal Action

Rescuing and Rehoming Animals in Need in Brooklyn, NY

Volunteer

Lindsey with Emily, a foster 1BAA is an all-volunteer organization. We depend on the energy and commitment of our volunteers, and there are many opportunities to get involved!

To learn more about volunteering for BAA, please email BrooklynAnimalAction@gmail.com. Be sure to include a resume, any relevant prior experience, what your skills and interests are, and your availability. Please note that we are not a shelter, so aside from fostering, we only occasionally have volunteer opportunities that involve direct animal care. We look forward to hearing from you!

Want to help cats and become part of a network of animal lovers who are helping improve the lives of animals every day? Then think about fostering! There are many more cats in need then Brooklyn Animal Action can currently help–if you can open your heart and home to a homeless animal you can help save a life. We truly value our fosters and couldn’t help as many cats as we do without help from people like you. You tell us the amount of time that you have to foster: two weeks, one month, until adopted… we’ll take it! We appreciate any time you have to offer. And we’ll help and advise if needed. We can take cats to Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan for fostering.

Please complete this form and email to brooklynanimalaction@gmail.com.

Have a car, van or SUV and a little extra time? We could really use a hand transporting cats to and from the ASPCA spay/neuter van, veterinarian’s office, or foster homes.

We post our cats on various websites to find homes for them. A good photograph can make all the difference. If you take good pictures of animals and are willing to go to foster homes to do it, please let us know.

It’s mundane, but it has to get done! If you have a few hours a week to help us input information in our database, organize our files, keep track of adoptions and donations – we’d be so grateful!

Are you a web guru or a social networking maven? We’d love help updating our website and maintaining our online presence.

Do you have experience raising money for nonprofits? Helping cats isn’t cheap, and we’re all volunteers, so any fundraising assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Do you have a basement, garage or other space you could lend for TNR? After TNR (trap-neuter-return) operations, cats need a few days to recover in their traps or carriers, while being fed and cleaned up after by volunteers. Whether we can spay/neuter cats, and thereby save lives, often depends on whether we have recovery space available. If you’re one of those lucky New Yorkers with access to space, please consider donating it for a few days!

We often post flyers in veterinarians’ offices, pet stores, cafés, etc. We could use help posting these flyers in your neighborhood.

Interested in community outreach to inform your neighbors about TNR, spay/neuter and other crucial animal welfare issues? Let us know! For starters, we could use help designing and printing informational flyers.
