April 18-24 is National Volunteer Appreciation Week! Each April we take time to reflect on the accomplishments of our team of volunteers.

In 2020, foster volunteers stepped up to the plate to bring more pets into their homes so we could operate with fewer people (and therefore pets) in Connecticut Humane Society buildings due to the pandemic, while others sewed masks to protect staff members. Later in the year, a limited number of volunteers returned on-site to help care for the animals and keep the building clean and sanitized. It was a year unlike any other, and volunteers continued to support CHS’ mission while adapting to changing guidelines to keep everyone safe.

CHS is especially thankful to those volunteers who continue to make a difference for the pets, year after year. The volunteers listed below have been dedicated to helping achieve CHS’ mission for over five years.
