VOLUNTEERING – The precious gift of time

Volunteers are critical parts of non-profits throughout the world, including here at WCHS. Our volunteers not only help to lighten the load of our staff, but by donating their time and talents, volunteers ensure that shelter operations can progress to a new level by assisting in socializing the animals, cleaning the shelter and helping at events and fundraisers. Staff and volunteers work together not only in animal care giving, but also in sharing the WCHS mission throughout the shelter and the community.

When you join WCHS as a volunteer you will become part of a team working to make our community a safer and more humane place for all living creatures.  Each time you leave the shelter you will be rewarded in knowing that you’ve created one more wagging tail, a purr and a smile.

Current Needs:

The services we provide at WCHS are vital to the community and with the commitment of both staff and volunteers we can help more animals throughout Washington County each year. Our volunteers complement our staff each day and it is wonderful to have volunteers who understand our mission and join in.
