Thank you for your interest in volunteering at HSHV!

Our volunteers are our most important asset. The work they do for our animals, shelter, and our programs is invaluable. Each and every day, a volunteer improves the life of an animal here at HSHV. Our volunteers help over 10,000 animals a year through shelter cleaning, administrative support, foster care, dog walking, cat comforting, and many other assignments. For group volunteer opportunities, please email volunteers@hshv.org
