No Dog? No Prob!

Thank you for your support of Hand in Paw!

Due to COVID-19, we are not currently recruiting Visit Assistants or HIP Ambassadors. We will continue to update our website as volunteer opportunities become available.  


How Can You Help Now?

Education Program Book Drive 

We need volunteers to help build our early childhood library for our Sit, Stay, Read! literacy program. Your donation of age appropriate books for children K- 3rd grade will help Birmingham area school children improve their literacy skills. Students receive a brand new “pawtographed” book from their HIP therapy partners when they reach a milestone in their reading progress.  Hand in Paw teams are meeting with students virtually to provide literacy support during COVID-19.  

Animal related books are encouraged but all books are welcome! Here is a link to our AMAZON WISH LIST!




Assist with fundraisers and events


HIP Ambassadors are volunteers who assist with HIP fundraisers and community events in line with our mission and programming. Due to COVID-19, the Ambassador program has been suspended until further notice. 

We love our volunteers!
