The Humane Society for Southwest Washington has many opportunities for you to make a difference in the lives of animals in need. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on volunteers to stretch our resources and strengthen our programs and services. We offer a wide variety of volunteer positions both working directly with animals and in non-animal related areas. Volunteering at the Humane Society is extremely rewarding; however, being a Humane Society Volunteer extends far beyond simply playing with puppies and kittens. Shelter volunteer work is not for everyone so please read through the information below thoroughly to make sure that our volunteer program is right for you.
IMPORTANT: All Humane Society Volunteers must be able to show proof of current medical health insurance coverage prior to beginning any volunteer duties. Individuals without current health insurance coverage are not permitted to volunteer with the Humane Society in any capacity, no exceptions.
Volunteer Programs Include:
- Adult Volunteer Program (ages 18 and up)
- Teen Volunteer Program (ages 15-17)
- Group Volunteering
- School Projects/Senior Projects
- Court-Appointed Community Service
- Foster Care Program
- Pet Facilitated Therapy (PFT)
At this time we do not offer volunteer opportunities for people younger than 15-years-old. We hope to be able to offer a volunteer program for kids and parents in the very near future.
