As a non-profit organization, we rely on the kindness and generosity of people like you to help make our facility a truly loving and comforting place. We have many great opportunities for volunteers to participate.

If you are interested in volunteering for Harbor Humane Society, please stop by our shelter and fill out an application or contact our Volunteer Coordinator at Your application will be reviewed by our Volunteer Coordinator, and we will contact you to schedule an orientation. All HHS volunteers must first attend a one hour orientation, followed by specialized training if you are interested in working with the animals. We ask that all interested volunteers make a commitment of no less than 5 hours per month with a minimum of a six month commitment.

Volunteers under 16 years of age must have their parent or guardian, that is 18 years or older, attend the volunteer orientation with them and be present with them at all times as a volunteer. Email address is required to be a volunteer. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at if you have any questions.

Do you want to help animals but don’t have the time to come volunteer at Harbor? Fostering might be right for you! Our largest need is caregivers for motherless kittens during the spring and summer months. If you are interested, please send your foster application to or email with any questions.
