Volunteers are critical to the operations of all nonprofits and the Humane Society of Allen County is no exception. Without the hard work of our volunteers we would not be able to live our mission to serve the abused, neglected and abandoned animals of our community.
Our programs, our events, even our day to day operations would not be possible without volunteers.
While volunteering is not a job per se it is very helpful when volunteers can schedule their time. That way we know when to expect to see you and can better plan support and participation in programs and events.
Volunteers can of course walk dogs and socialize cats. But volunteers can also help in the business office—answering phones, updating mailing lists, if qualified do light bookkeeping, filing, pre-paring event materials. There are many ways you can use your time and talents to help.
In order to volunteer is it necessary to attend an orientation. We try to hold two such meetings a month. In March we have the 7th and the 21st scheduled. Give us a call, download the application from the web site and schedule your orientation today.
We do ask modest volunteer commitment fee to cover the cost of your t-shirt, a virtual adoption of a shelter pet for a year and other volunteer program costs. More and more shelters across the country are requiring such fees given the economy.
