The outpouring of love and support from the community is underscored by FETCH’s extraordinary volunteers who help us with just about everything!  Our volunteers are truly part of our extended family.  They donate their time by manning the FETCH info booth at events out in our community; they donate their talents by joining our event committees for our Bow Tie Open golf tournament and Pets on Parade event; they show their dedication and love to the pets in our community by helping with our Pen Pals program and spreading the word about how FETCH can help pets who have been diagnosed with cancer through our Companions in Crisis program; and they commit their voices to the mission by attending all the other fundraising events that we have! These represent just a fraction of what they do and how they help.

If you want to become a volunteer, contact Rebecca at Rebecca@fetchacure.com or call the FETCH office at 804.525.2193 and she will find the best volunteer job match for you based on your availability and talents.
