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!

Ryan & Leanne Bean with Piney Dog Care VolunteersVolunteers 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, and can make a one year commitment. Teens 16 & 17 years old, who can make a six month commitment can volunteer in our Youth Program, assisting our Operations Coordinator and then volunteering in Cat or Dog care, based on our needs.

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 Shoshannah Reed, Volunteer Program Manager.

Next Orientation: Saturday, May 9th • 10 AM-11:30 AM

Eventbrite - May 9th 2015 New Volunteer Orientation

Must be 18 or older. We are currently seeking individuals who are available to work in the mornings and evenings (all days needed) performing Dog Care and/or Cat Care as well as Customer Service Representatives/Front Office who can work on Saturdays!

Please note: our Youth Program is full at this time.

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!
