Being a volunteer is extremely rewarding, educational, exciting, and fun. You can have a huge impact on the lives of these homeless animals. Cleaning up a neglected animal, giving them a meal, a blanket and a pat on the head will touch your heart and bring you back for more. It is so rewarding to see how the animals respond immediately to the love they receive while they are at the sanctuary. In many cases this is the first time someone has really cared for them.
The number of volunteers and the many different ways to volunteer has grown tremendously over the years. Because of the volunteers, dogs are walked, cats are socialized, dogs learn basic obedience training, cats and dogs have their photos posted on petfinder.com, sick, injured or abused dogs and cats recuperate, and most importantly dogs' and cats' lives that would otherwise be euthanized are saved.
The HEA volunteer program has been created for the animals. Below are links to more information on how you can help. If you're interested in learning more and signing up to attend a volunteer orientation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of the events posted on our Events page are also in need of volunteers.
