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.

  • 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. 

  • Senior Pet Wellness

Our dedicated Senior Pet Wellness volunteers work hand in hand with senior citizens and their pets to ensure the animals are receiving the care, exercise, supplies provided for in the program.

  • 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.

  •  Farmed Animals + Horse Care support

Several of our volunteers partner with our foster parents to provide extra TLC to our farmed animals and horses.

  • Ella's CatHouse & Catnip Bar

Are you a crazy cat person? Our feline adoption lounge needs volunteers to donate their time as cat greeters, lead cat specialists, and helping to groom and socialize our adoptable cats
