Volunteer for Humane Society of Fremont County

Where Every Life Matters

Volunteer with Humane Society Fremont CountyThanks for your interest in volunteering with Humane Society of Fremont County! As an independent nonprofit organization, we rely on volunteers to help with virtually every aspect of our organization, such as providing daily care to the animals, exercise and enrichment for the animals, assisting with housekeeping duties, and helping visitors, just to name a few. Your time as a volunteer is a valuable gift and just a few hours a week can (and will) make an incredible difference in the lives of homeless animals.

Volunteer Prerequisites
There is NO minimum hour commitment to be a volunteer. Volunteers must be at least 17 years of age. Individuals between 13 and 16 years of age may also volunteer, but due to insurance regulations, they must have a parent with them at all times. Volunteers should be committed to being dependable and to abide by the policies and procedures of the Humane Society of Fremont County.

Steps to Volunteering

1

Application

All volunteers must fill out an application form in order to volunteer with Humane Society of Fremont County. Our Online Volunteer Application Form allows you to quickly send us your information for review.

2

Interview

Prospective volunteers will be invited to interview with a shelter staffer to discuss personal goals, daily responsibilities, and whether or not the position is a proper fit for you. We say that because some have wanted to volunteer, but once they see animals living in cages, animals coming into the shelter in horrific condition, and animals being surrendered at the front counter, some can not handle volunteering at an animal shelter.

3

Orientation

Attending a Volunteer Orientation provides an overview of the Humane Society’s programs and services, answer frequently asked questions about the shelter, review available volunteer opportunities, and provides a complete shelter tour.

4

Training

Each prospective volunteer is required to attend a Volunteer Animal Training Session to review shelter safety procedures, learn how to read animals’ body language, and how to properly handle animals within a shelter environment. This is for your safety and also, for the safety of our animals.
