Volunteering to help our mission fills your heart and helps pets in need

Your time, energy, and passion can improve the lives of animals in need and contribute to bettering your community – all while providing you with an experience that is deeply rewarding. Our volunteer program is a chance to live your passion, share your talents, meet like-minded people, and even potentially learn new skills. And your impact on the precious lives of animals is immeasurable. Whether you are interested in walking dogs, helping at events, or socializing cats, there is a place for you at HSHA. The animals are waiting for you … get started today!
