When is it offered? Our program is held monthly and morning (9:30-12:30pm) and afternoon (1:30-4:30pm) sessions are available. 

What's Included: Our program provides a shelter tour, education about HSHV, a dog meet and greet and 2 hours of volunteer time. Light snacks as well as coffee and water will be available. 

What Volunteer Work is Included? Volunteer assignments for the Day of Service program are based on shelter need at the time of the program. Typical assignments include adminstrative work, landscape support, mulch spreading, cleaning and more! While we work to accomodate all volunteers, we do recommend that volunteers are able to lift up to 20 lbs. Please note that besides the meet and greet portion of the program, volunteer assignments will include very little interaction with animals. 

Who Can Attend:  Our program can accomodate up to 10 people, ages 18 and over. We welcome groups that may include adults who have cognitive or physical impairments. To ensure everyone has a fun, successful day volunteering with us, we ask that caregivers or a person of support attend with any adults who may need extra assistance. Unfortunately we are unable to accept Court Ordered volunteers for this program. For groups under the age of 18, please visit our humane education group programs for more opportunities. 


What to Wear:  Day of service volunteers should wear comfortable clothes that are okay to get a little dirty. We also require closed toed shoes, even in the summer months. Volunteers should dress for the weather as some of the day may be spent outdoors (weather permitting). Due to Covid-19, you will be asked to wear a mask during the entire volunteer program.  You will also be asked to complete a health screen form, including a temperature check prior to attending. We ask that if you aren't feeling well, to stay home.
