Save-A-Vet depends entirely on volunteers like you for our work. This takes on many forms -- anything from:

  • helping out with the planning & staffing of local & national events & fundraisers.

  • spreading the word with our brochures and by sharing our Save-A-Vest posts & videos on FacebookTwitterYouTube and other social media;

  • donating needed materials, supplies, equipment, and services of all kinds;

  • referring us to people who can help advance the work;

  • the list goes on -- so many people have helped us in so many ways!
