Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Heartland Humane Society! We offer a wide range of volunteer opportunities for groups and individuals of all ages. We believe there’s a way for each of us to help the animals; use the hyperlinks below to find the option that suits you best:

Shelter Volunteering: Shelter volunteers perform a wide variety of tasks from animal care to outreach, making a huge impact on day to day operations. For individuals aged 16 and up, or youth with an adult chaperone. To learn more, visit our Shelter Volunteering page. Note: This is for on-going volunteering; below you can find opportunities for one-time volunteering, class-required hours, court-ordered community service, and group volunteers.
