GENERAL VOLUNTEER INFORMATION
Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering for Capital Humane Society. Our volunteers are part of a compassionate, non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of companion animals.
Individuals who are interested in volunteering need to be at least 16 years of age and complete an online application. The application will be reviewed and you will be contacted if there is an opportunity for you.
Accepted applicants will need to watch an online orientation video and there will be an assessment test to take. Once you pass the test, additional information will be provided to learn specifics about the routine. After that, you will be scheduled to volunteer.
We are extremely fortunate in receiving an abundance of requests to work directly with the animals. Though this is one way that people help, Capital Humane Society is an organization with many important volunteer roles.
Capital Humane Society is carefully navigating the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. We will schedule volunteers to use our resources in the most productive manner while being mindful of social distancing recommendations.
At this time, we have limited opportunities to volunteer. Please see the current opportunities listed below.
We are seeking volunteers to help with cleaning only at our Admissions & Assessment Center. Duties include washing dishes, mopping floors and folding laundry.
We need volunteers who can schedule a shift for 1-2 hours, one day a week, generally between the hours of 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
If you are interested in volunteering in this capacity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the online application and to ask any additional questions.

OTHER WAYS TO HELP
People of all ages often choose to help homeless pets at the shelter by having pet supplies from our wish list donated to the shelter in honor of their birthday or a special occasion.
