At UPF, our entire organization is run 100% by volunteers – many of whom contribute efforts outside of their normal 40-hour workweek. It is only with their support that we are able to accomplish our numerous goals and successfully orchestrate our events. As such, we always have a call out for more.

Your extra time, talents, muscle and energy are so very valuable to us – and welcome for everything from staffing Pet Health and distribution days to loading and collecting supplies to joining our board and lending us your expertise.

We look forward to working with you soon!

Volunteer Opportunities

Distribution Days

Each month, UPF volunteers coordinate, gather, organize and distribute tons of pet food and other vital products to regional shelters and advocacy groups. Resources also include puppy pads, cat litter, litter boxes, medical supplies, health items and more. UPF’s Distribution Days take place at their Resource Center, which serves as both warehouse and main operating facility. Member organizations can RSVP and request items in advance of each event day.

Volunteer Work Days

UPF volunteers help prepare and organize pet food, toys, litter, cleaning supplies, and other vital resources to prep for UPF’s monthly Distribution Days. Volunteer Work Days are vital to Distribution Days to make sure all items are properly organized and ready to go for the 100+ animal rescue, shelter, and advocacy groups UPF works with.

Paws in the Park

Help the United Pet Fund provide vital resources for hundreds of shelters and rescues across our region! We’ve teamed up with The City of Blue Ash for a unique dog-focused event this fall at Summit Park … and it’s going to be a doggone good time!

Based on our past experience, this event attracts 3,000+ people of all ages, backgrounds and socioeconomic statuses. Whether attendees
walk on two legs or four, there’ll be something for everyone! Furry friends can participate in dock diving, agility courses and a costume parade while humans can shop an array of independent vendors selling both pet-related and non-pet-related goods, fill up at our food truck station and more!
