Volunteer with Silicon Valley Pet Project 

Thank you for expressing interest in becoming a volunteer for Silicon Valley Pet Project. Your time, talent and experience are critical in fulfilling our mission of saving local at-risk shelter pets. We're a growing organization committed to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming homeless pets with a focus on at-risk animals at our local San Jose municipal shelter (one of the largest animal shelters in California). We need people to help in every aspect of the organization.

Silicon Valley Pet Project  is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion.   Our human capital is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities, and talent that our volunteers and employees invest in their work represents a significant part of our culture.
