Volunteer

volunteer  login buttonPut your talents to work in our community by becoming a VHS volunteer. The heart and soul of our organization, volunteers help us rescue more animals and reach more people than we ever could alone. Volunteers make a difference, make new friends, and make it all possible!

Volunteers learn about VHS and receive full training in our policies and procedures to assure the health and safety of our animals. Volunteer opportunities are available for adults 18 years and older, teens 16 years and older (without parent), and youth ages 12-15 (with parent or guardian).

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information on becoming a volunteer.  To register to attend a New Volunteer Orientation (required), register below. If you have additional questions please, contact Sara Luquin, Volunteer Program Manager.

Next Volunteer Orientation: Saturday, December 20th at 9am

Looking for a short term commitment, please consider fostering an animal. Fostering also helps save lives, and usually requires a much shorter volunteer term. There are many ways to help!

For those seeking to fulfill school-related Community Service requirements, VHS offers Teen Marketing and Junior Volunteer options for youth.

Junior Volunteers

For young people between the ages of 12 and 15 without a parent or guardian to accompany their volunteer time, VHS offers the Junior Volunteers program. Gain valuable experience while caring for VHS cats in a supervised environment during this four-week program.
