Volunteering Opportunities

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit our shelter so you can see how we need help and the environment that you’ll be working in.

We spend many hours a month orienting new volunteers, and only a few people return after their first day.  It’s physical work and you will get dirty!  We need people that will be able to provide help on a regular basis so that the time we spend with new people will ultimately be returned to the animals with long-term help.

Some examples of the help needed are:

  • Help with the cats – cleaning, socializing, photographing, washing dishes/litter boxes
  • Help with the dogs (if over 18) – walking (with 2-hour training class and weekly commitment of 2 hours), cleaning, photographing, washing dishes
  • General housekeeping – cleaning the bathing tub, mopping, washing windows, painting, etc.
  • Handyman help
  • Fundraising Event help

If you want to become involved, come on down to The Humane Society during our open hours of 12-5pm Tuesday thru Friday and 11-4pm Saturday to check us out and fill out a volunteer application.

If you are interested in fostering special needs dogs or cats/kittens, please submit the following:  Foster Care Agreement & Application

We also welcome questions in advance at kmatson@bchumanesoc.com

We look forward to meeting you!
