Volunteers keep tails wagging 365 days a year. If you’re ready to make pets smile,  follow the steps below:

1. Check out the current volunteer needs below. If you don’t see a position that’s a good match today, check back at a later date. CHS does not keep a waiting list.

2. See a position that interests you? Watch the Virtual Open House video to learn more about becoming a CHS volunteer. This is a requirement before you apply.

3. Watched the video? Liked what you saw? Now it’s time to Apply to Volunteer. Make sure to specify the role and shift that interest you. Selected applicants will be invited in for an interview. CHS is not able to process applications that do not meet the basic requirements.

You need to be 18 or older to volunteer. Under 18? Don’t worry! You can still get involved.

Complete mandatory service for court.
