VOLUNTEER PROGRAM UNDER CONSTRUCTION!
*We are currently in the process of restructuring our volunteer program to better meet the needs of the animals in our care and to better the experience for YOU! As part of this transition process, we are currently not accepting any new volunteers. We ask for your patience during this time and apologize for any inconvenience. We will be accepting new volunteers in fall when we unveil our new program- we can’t wait for you to see the changes we’ve made! Check back for updates! *
Be the change – become a volunteer.
You get to choose how you can help. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available. Select what suits you…then join us – you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference you can make! Interested parties will need to submit a volunteer application – available below or at the shelter. After we process your application, we invite you to a general orientation, which includes an overview of HSMC and its procedures and policies. During this time, we also provide a dog-walking and cat-socialization orientation.
Minors under the age of 16 must be accompanied at all times by a parent/guardian who is a registered volunteer. Minors between the ages of 16 to 18 may volunteer within the shelter with a signed waiver by their parent/guardian and attendance at a general orientation. You must be 18 years of age to walk a dog or participate in events outside the shelter that include an animal.
We can’t wait for you to join us in making humane treatment possible for all living creatures.
