There are as many ways to help the animals as there are people in this world. We have a number of ways to get involved that fit the needs of animal lovers. However, we have the flexibility to work with you in any manner you feel is appropriate.

Volunteering and Community Service

Getting Started

Fill out a volunteer application

*All orientations are by appointment. To volunteer at the shelter, please email volunteer@heartlandhumane.org to schedule your orientation. Thrift Shop Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to schedule your orientation and training in the order in which they are received.

Youth Volunteers

Youth volunteering is open to all ages. Youth age 15 and under are required to be supervised by an adult, so we encourage parents to be involved with their child(ren)’s volunteering service. Like adult volunteers, youth volunteers age 8 and up are also required to complete a volunteer application, found above, and attend an orientation.
