How to Become a Volunteer
For your safety, Heritage Humane Society requires that every volunteer be at least 12 years of age. Volunteers 12 to 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult who has also been through volunteer orientation. In order to keep everyone safe, volunteers must be at least 16 years old in order to walk dogs.
Complete an application and liability release form. Volunteers 12-17 years old should complete the youth application. Paper volunteer applications are also available at our Adoption Center. The Front Desk Team is available from 8 AM – 4:30 PM daily.
You will be notified of upcoming orientations after your application has been reviewed. Pre-registration for orientation is required because space is limited.
Attend your pre-scheduled Volunteer Orientation Part 1 at the Heritage Humane Society (see above).
Complete 10 hours of volunteer service that is not directly working with the animals like cleaning cat cages, helping with dishes, or doing laundry. Once you have completed your 10 hours of volunteering, you will receive additional training on other volunteer fields (dog walking, PetSmart Cat Adoption Center, offsites, etc.)
