If you are interesed in volunteering at the Humane Society we will be having orientation on the following dates:

 Tuesday, October 15th 10am

Thank you for helping us help the animals!

What is required to be a volunteer?
Because there is a considerable amount of time involved in the training of our volunteers, our volunteers are required to join our efforts by becoming memebers of the society.
Membership Fee is only:  $35 for adults and $30 for students which includes:
volunteer t shirt, wrist band and a drawstring sports bag.
Once we recieve your application we will sign you up for the next orientation class.
