Family Day of Service
Humane Society of Huron Valley

What is it Family Day of Service? This 1.5 hour program includes information about HSHV, shelter tour, humane education lesson (geared towards ages 5-11), a meet-and-greet with an adoptable animal, and hands-on volunteer time.

When is Family Day of Service Offered? Our program is offered on select Sundays throughout the year and runs from 10-11:30am.

Who can participate? All ages can participate, although our Humane Education lessons are most applicable to ages 5-11 years.  We ask that there is at least one adult (age 18+) per 2 children.  

What will we be doing? There will be two project options and each family will have the opportunity to choose their project.  Projects can change depending on shelter need, but they will either involve animal enrichment or an adopter “thank you” project.  With the exception of the animal meet-and-greet, there is no handling or direct contact with our animals during the event.

Is there a fee, and what’s included? To cover the cost of materials, background check (ensuring no convictions related to abuse, violence, fraud or theft), staff time, and to support the work of HSHV, we charge a nominal fee of $30 per family (up to 3 participants) and $5 per additional child (children under 1 are free), due at registration. We’ll also provide your group with light snacks, coffee and water that day!

What should we wear? Please wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. For your safety, we require closed-toed shoes, even in summer.  Due to Covid-19, masks will be required and you will be asked to complete a brief health screening form (which includes a temperature check). 

How do we sign up? Please check this page for upcoming Family Days of Service! 

What if we need to cancel? Please contact our Volunteer Manager. Cancellations received more than 60 days prior to your scheduled date can be refunded in full. We regret that cancellations made fewer than 60 days before your family’s scheduled date cannot be refunded.
