United Hope for Animals

United Hope for Animals is a non-profit animal welfare organization working to foster community-based solutions that prevent and end the suffering of companion animals. We work hand in hand with local shelters to raise the adoption profile of shelter pets, and educate the public about the crisis of overpopulation in our city's shelters.

Our volunteer needs are for our Support Program in the San Gabriel Valley: http://www.unitedhope4animals.org/about-us/shelter-support-program/

Mission Statement
We are dedicated to creating a world where our relationship with companion animals is guided by compassion.

We actively participate in the struggle to prevent and to end needless suffering of dogs and cats through rescue, adoption, spay/neuter and education.


The lifesaving work that United Hope for Animals is able to perform is due to both the critical work of volunteers and the kindness of donors. It takes a special person to step outside their normal life’s demands and give time and energy to helping ease the suffering of those special creatures that we call "man’s best friend."

Unfortunately man is not always a dog’s best friend, and that is why so many of these animals end up homeless, frightened and sick with no one to love and care for them.

Shelter resources are limited and hard-working staff are overburdened trying to keep the basic necessities in place. That is where you come in. A community of hands working together can make light work, and a small investment of time can make a huge difference in the lives of these dogs.

The rewards are limited only by your imagination, determination, talent and perseverance. Even if you just show up with open arms and a smile on your face, you will find that you have come to the right place. Join our team and become a part of a fun, hard-working, friendly group with a dynamic, "can-do" attitude. Our volunteers have formed lasting friendships through their shared passion for helping animals in need.

Intern Job Description:

The intern will be directly working with UHA’s Program Director. As an intern, you are expected to do more than socializing with the dogs and cats, although that is certainly welcomed. Some examples of the intern’s daily duties include, but are not limited to: managing the website content, updating and managing the volunteer profiles, writing articles for the website, and lastly researching related animal shelter information. You will be able to see how your contribution directly impacts the organization and helps UHA in a big way. The position is very flexible, so you can decide you own hours. But we are looking for someone that is reliable and can work independently.

If interested please send an email to Laura Knightly at laurak@hope4animals.org with the subject line "UHA Intern Candidiate", include your resume as an attachment and a short blurb describing your interest.
