Due to COVID-19 precautions, we have paused bringing in new volunteers for now. Although we do not currently have volunteer orientations scheduled, we are restructuring our orientation and training program and will be welcoming new volunteers in the fall.

Volunteers play an essential role at HSNB, and we appreciate everything you do for us! Our volunteers help hundreds of animals each year through dog walking, cat socializing and play time; administrative support; foster care; assisting at adoption events and many other opportunities. Volunteers help out anywhere from 1-2 days per week to 2-3 hours per month. Whatever time you have available will make a difference in the lives of our animals.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Dog walking & socializing
  • Cat play time & socializing
  • Outreach events
  • Clerical & office work
  • Animal care, cleaning, and feeding
