Become a Volunteer for Humane Animal Rescue!

Thank you for your interest in joining our Humane Animal Rescue Volunteer Team!

Our volunteers are the key to the success of our shelters. We are looking for volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of abandoned and orphaned animals in our care. We need friendly, outgoing and personable volunteers to assist the public and work with the staff in our animal shelters and at on-site and off-site community events.

Our dogs, cats, rabbits, and other animals are in need of care, attention, walking, training, playing, socialization and engaging with people in order to provide the best possible outcomes. You may choose to work with any or all of our animal populations, if you have the capabilities and time required. All on-site volunteers wishing to directly handle animals begin with either the Dog Walking/ Cat Care/ Rabbit Care assignments and then may be able to progress to Shelter Dog Training Classes, Enrichment, or other higher level behavior handling assignments based on individual skill levels. Volunteers are also needed to assist with other important roles such as: adoptions, kennel care, medical services, greeting customers, photography, videography, humane education, and some office tasks. You can learn more about Becoming a Shelter Volunteer here.

The first step to becoming a Shelter Volunteer is to attend an Open House.
