Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Humane Society for Southwest Washington.  We have 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 program information thoroughly to make sure that our volunteer program is right for you.

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, our liability insurance prohibits us from accepting volunteers younger than 15 years of age.  If you do not meet our age requirements but are still interested in working with the Humane Society, please consider signing up for our Critter Camps or Kids' Clubs.  You can find more information here
