Become a Heartland Ambassador!

Be the first impression an adopter makes of Heartland, the smiling face that invites them in to meet their new best friend. We need you: friendly, reliable volunteers who will help our staff better serve the public. You’ll answer questions and give directions, but most importantly, you’ll help make every person who walks through our doors feel welcome!



As easy as 1,2,3… One shift a week, 2 hours per shift, 3 month commitment (and you can renew if you want).

Ambassadors volunteer every day that the shelter is open to the public, with a 12 – 2 pm shift each day. The afternoon shift is from 4 – 6 pm on weekdays and 3 –  5 pm on weekends. Choose the shift that fits your schedule.

No need to be an expert- training provided!
