HSEC Volunteers

Over 100 individuals help support the work of the shelter with their time and expertise. There are lots of volunteer opportunities at the Humane Society! The Humane Society provides a vast array of services for animal welfare in this community. As we look at volunteerism and making the best use of our volunteers’ time and talents, we want to ensure that we properly place people in the right kinds of positions.

The process of becoming a volunteer requires commitment to learn about the organization and to become properly prepared to be an effective volunteer especially as you may be dealing with animals. We do our utmost to prepare our volunteers and to ensure that individuals who volunteer are suited to this type of work.

If you are interested in beginning a journey with the Humane Society, please contact Janet at 574-848-4225 or janet@elkharthumanesociety.org to confirm that you would like to attend our next orientation. You must RSVP for us to reserve a place for you and to ensure we have enough materials for everyone. You’ll learn lots about the Humane Society and lots about the various types of positions available.
