Volunteer With FPOW
Fairfax Pets On Wheels appreciates the dedication and commitment of the people and pets who are the lifeblood of our all-volunteer organization.
There are lots of ways to help us make a difference every day.
FPOW volunteers and their pet partners make a difference every day by touching the lives of thousands of people in Fairfax area nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, and adult day health care centers. Regular visits provide an opportunity to share the unconditional love of a pet and improve someone’s quality of life. In return, human volunteers get to spend more time with their pet – and make new friends.
