Put 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!
To get started, please attend a New Volunteer Orientation and read our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for more information. New Volunteer Orientations are offered every other month; registration is required.
Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 • 6 pm – Register March 1st
Please click on the side bar “Volunteer opportunities” to see our open positions.
If looking to fulfill Senior Service hours, we cannot accommodate that at this time. We require a six month commitment for teens, volunteering on a weekly shift. Thank you for your interest.
Juniors looking to fulfill Senior Service hours may apply to be a camp counselor for our 2017 summer camp that starts in June. Please contact Emily Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Please note: If you do not see a red button, our registration is currently full or closed; next month’s registration typically opens two weeks before the orientation.
Volunteers learn about VHS and receive full training in our policies and procedures to assure the health and safety of our animals. Click Volunteer for details about our volunteer opportunities and open positions. Positions 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, must be available volunteering in Cat or Dog care, based on our needs.
If you have additional questions, please contact Shoshannah Reed, Volunteer Program Manager.
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. Register now!
