Group Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in bringing your group to the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia to volunteer.

We usually enlist these groups to help with grounds maintenance tasks such as:

  • Weeding
  • Painting
  • Helping with small building projects
  • Spreading mulch in on our dog and puppy pens
  • Stuffing packets
  • Sorting animal toys and food
  • Staffing educational booths, fundraising events, or adoption events (on-site and off)
  • Assisting with animal socialization, as needed. 

These projects do not always include hands-on contact with the animals in our care, but they are all very important aspects of helping animals in need. 

Volunteers who help us with animal care go through extensive training and make monthly commitments to a volunteer position. If you are interested in helping in this way, please read more about volunteering at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia.

You may also call 770-532-6617 ext. 243 for more information on volunteering.
