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.
