Volunteering

The involvement of community members, volunteers, donors and countless supporters is vital to the success and growth of Heartland Humane Society.

Here at Heartland Humane Society, our volunteers are vital to our success. Our volunteers make it possible for us to help all the animals located at the shelter and in foster care each day. We are excited to have you join us! Here is how you get started:

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form on the left of this page. You will receive contact back regarding current available positions. Note: shelter volunteers must be age 16 and older to be an active member. All members under 16 years of age will be required to have a parent or guardian present.

Shelter volunteers must volunteer at least twice a month onsite. We prefer you be able to volunteer at least once a week. We understand folks get ill, events happen and people get to do awesome vacations. We accommodate all these things but ask that attendance be as regular as possible. 

You must be able to commit for at least six months. It's a lot of work to train a new volunteer and to maintain our volunteer schedule. We need 85 active volunteers to operate the shelter.

Due to safety measures, we cannot accommodate group volunteer activities. We do accompany tours for groups and we encourage groups to host a drive for the shelter.  To learn more, simply call the shelter at 605-664-4244.
