Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer COVID-19 Notice: We are still accepting new volunteers. However, under the current circumstances, volunteer start dates are pending. In the meantime, we are in great need of fosters. If you are able to foster, please complete the Emergency Foster Plea form by clicking HERE.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia!

Every day, volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of experience volunteer to improve the lives of animals at our facility and in our larger community. Each volunteer plays a vital role in the success of our shelter and care for nearly 2,000 animals each year, and our outreach service endeavors. Please read below further to learn more about our volunteer opportunities.

Due to the amount of training we require for most of our volunteer positions, we ask for a 6-month commitment for 4 hours per month. Volunteers can come in for a regularly scheduled recurring shift or as available. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer alone. Youth ages 8-17 must be accompanied by a parent for all volunteer sessions, with the exception of our Humane Hero’s Teen Volunteer program, in which they may volunteer by themselves. 

After completing your Volunteer Application you will receive an email to sign-up for a New Volunteer Orientation.
