Whether you're a visitor to our legendary Wine Country, or are a Napa Valley resident, volunteering for Jameson Animal Rescue Ranch (JARR) will make a difference in the lives of these animals! We are in immediate need of:


  • Foster parents

While waiting for their forever home, might you provide a loving, temporary place for an animal to land for a few months, a week, or even just a few days? JARR will provide pre-approved medical care for foster animals, and in many cases cover the costs of food and flea and tick medication.

  • Transportation

JARR provides spay/neuter and other medical procedures for all of our rescued animals – at times we need volunteers to take them to and from the veterinarian, transport animals from surrender situations or shelters to foster homes, or provide transport services for medication, food, etc. Commitment time varies from as a little as a few moments to a few hours. This is an on-call duty.

  • Help with our Paws on Wheels Pet Food Drive program

Our Paws On Wheels Pet Food Drive occurs year-round. We are looking for JARR Ambassadors to be on hand at one of nine locationsto answer questions, accept food donations, and make friends for JARR! 

  • Occasional dog walking

Do you enjoy getting your daily fresh air and exercise? Why not consider volunteering to walk our foster animals? We need dog walkers located throughout the Napa Valley. From time to time, our fosters also require assistance with animal sitting and feeding needs. 

  • Special Events

JARR hosts and participates in a variety of special events and fundraisers throughout the year. Volunteers are needed for responsibilities at these events such as: ambassadors, greeters, registration, set-up, clean-up, etc. 

  • Community Outreach

We educate the community about our mission at many locations such as the Napa and St. Helena Farmer’s Markets, Whole Foods, and at other community events throughout the year. Volunteers are needed to share information about JARR with the public. Attendance of an orientation to learn more is mandatory for participation.
