Volunteers Really Make a Difference!

The Humane Society of Greene County is dedicated to finding loving homes for homeless dogs and cats, what we like to call a “forever home.” Many people meet their new best friend at our shelter and we would not be able to accomplish this without one of our most important resources–our volunteers.

The Humane Society’s Volunteer Program has a number of options available to enable humans to help our furry friends. There are options for those who wish to work “hands on” with the animals in our care, as well as positions for those who prefer to work off-site in the community on behalf of our animals. For more information about volunteering, please talk to a staff member or Director Jane Gapen at humanegreene@windstream.net.

To familiarize you with volunteer opportunities at the Greene County Humane Society, here are some Frequently Asked Questions.

To help us right away, here is a list of supplies that we need. Many of these items are used up regularly, and we always need them. At the bottom of the page is a list of what your contribution of money will buy if you decide to help us that way.

When you are ready to support us with your time and effort, here is how we employ our volunteers. You may be surprised at what we need, so even if you have short blocks of time, or want to work at home, we may have a way for you to help the shelter.

Whether you are an individual wanting to help, or a group such as students from Waynesburg University (pictured left) , wanting to help and have a little fun, you can truly make a difference in an animal’s life – and in YOURS.

Here is the application to volunteer at the shelter. You can print this out and then fill it out and bring it to the shelter. This is an Adobe PDF document, so you need Acrobat Reader or Adobe Acrobat to view it. Acrobat Reader is free, and many people already have it on their computers. If you need Acrobat Reader, you can download it here, then remember to come back to this page to get the volunteer application.

Your generous donations keep our shelter doors open.
