WHAT WILL BE EXPECTED OF ME?
Rescue Ink accepts volunteers both for our shelter in Long Beach, NY and for our Outreach Program. Volunteers may choose whether they wish to work in the shelter, in outreach, or both. Shelter volunteers work under the Shelter Director’s supervision to provide care for the animals including walking dogs, playing with cats, cleaning the facility, and other needs that change daily. Outreach volunteers work under the Outreach Director’s supervision and attend tabling events and other community events to share the Rescue Ink mission through education.
HOW LONG CAN I VOLUNTEER FOR?
There is no minimum or maximum.
WHAT QUALIFICATIONS, IF ANY, DO I REQUIRE?
Only a passion for the animals, trustworthiness, and to keep your commitments. We ask that if you volunteer for a shift that you please show up for that shift.
WILL I NEED TO KNOW ANOTHER LANGUAGE?
HOW DO I GET TO YOUR LOCATION?
JFK Airport in NY is the closest airport to our shelter which is located in Long Beach, NY. We hope to develop Volunteer Chapters nationwide so that volunteers may get involved in Outreach all across the country. Please contact us to volunteer no matter where you live, there may be opportunities.

WHAT TYPE OF ACCOMMODATION, MEALS AND FACILITIES CAN I EXPECT TO BE AVAILABLE TO ME?
Volunteers are responsible for their own accommodation and meals.
WHAT ANIMAL SPECIES ARE THERE?
Dogs, cats, horses, reptiles, small animals
WHAT ATTRACTIONS CAN I EXPERIENCE DURING FREE-TIME?
When a volunteer signs up for a shift, we prefer they focus on the work needed for that time. However on the Outreach side of things, when we are at events we encourage the volunteers to take plenty of breaks and explore and learn about the other vendors and organizations present.
Rescue Ink is dedicated to battling animal abuse and neglect, and providing education about the mistreatment of animals. But don’t be fooled…Rescue Ink isn’t your typical rescue organization. These tough-talking tattooed bikers aren’t afraid to use their verbal muscle-power to take the fight against animal abuse to the next level, within the boundaries of the law. Rescue Ink is different because we take direct action against animal abuse and neglect.
