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

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

Volunteer Opportunities

Our fall recruitment session has closed. Thank you for your interest! We’ll open recruitment again in January. Watch this page for more information.

Court-Ordered Community Service

We are accepting applications for court-ordered community service. We can’t accept applications for service stemming from animal abuse, animal neglect, assault of any kind, robbery, burglary, or theft. To get started, contact our Animal Welfare Supervisor at 503-585-5900, extension 323.
