volunteer to help save lives

Pit Bull Rescue San Diego would not survive without the dedicated help of our volunteers. We realize that there are many organizations that you could volunteer your valuable time to and are extremely grateful that you are choosing to volunteer for us.

Please note that our insurance does not allow us to have volunteers under the age of 18. If you are not, we wish this wasn't the policy, and hope you'll come back to volunteer with us once you turn 18.
Please tell us a little about yourself including why you've chosen to volunteer for PBRSD.

Here are some of the many ways you can help
