We are looking for compassionate and dedicated volunteers to become an essential part of our Harbor team. When thinking about becoming a volunteer here, we ask for a commitment of at least 6 months, with a minimum of 5 hours per month. If you are passionate about saving homeless animals’ lives and feel like you can make the requested time commitment, the next step is to sign up for volunteer orientation.
Volunteer orientation runs roughly every six weeks. There is limited space in each orientation class.

Please contact our Programs Manager with any questions or concerns at programs@harborhumane.org

Other Pawsome Ways To Help

Fundraise

Did you know that it takes roughly $30 a day to house one healthy animal for one day at Harbor? That’s why we need you! Help our furry friends by raising money.
