Become a Volunteer!

The Humane Society of Utah offers a number of opportunities for volunteers.

Many volunteers enjoy walking the dogs, socializing with the cats, or fostering animals who need special care until they can be adopted. Others serve as adoption counselors after going through a training period. Volunteers are also needed to participate in events like Adopt-A-Thons, and our Community Outreach program, not to mention the regular activities held throughout the year.

New volunteers are required to attend an initial orientation meeting before they may serve within the Humane Society. New Volunteer orientations are scheduled periodically and regular volunteer meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month. You can commit to as little as eight hours a month or come in and help every day- it's up to you! Every minute you donate to help a homeless pet helps to keep tails wagging and voices purring. You can tell in their furry faces that you make a difference.

The Humane Society is dependent on dedicated volunteers to help save the lives of Utah's homeless pets. If you're interested in becoming a volunteer for HSU, please come to the next orientation or call Lisa at 261-2919, ex. 233.
