Volunteering at WHS

Our volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing their passion and talent to Willamette Humane Society. From working in the kennels, to supporting the clinic, to helping in our downtown Thrift Store, there’s a place for you here.

Volunteer Commitment

Volunteers must be a minimum of 16 years of age and complete all volunteer training and paperwork. Individuals between ages 12 and 15 may volunteer with a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Both the youth and adult will need to fill out applications and participate in all volunteer training.

After training, volunteers must commit to a minimum of six months of service, serving a minimum of two volunteer shifts per month. Volunteer shifts range in length between 2-4 hours. All volunteer scheduling takes place through our online scheduling system.
