The Humane Society of Central Oregon (HSCO) is able to provide quality services and programs to the community because of the generous assistance of our dedicated Thrift Store and Animal Shelter volunteers.
We are committed to providing each volunteer a rewarding and productive volunteer experience with our organization. We invite volunteers of all ages to help our shelter and thrift store provide care for the numerous animals in our shelter. Some of the volunteer opportunities have specific age requirements which can be found in the position descriptions.
"I love animals, and by volunteering at HSCO, I can help shelter animals find a new and better life. The HSCO volunteer program offers excellent training opportunities and support so that each volunteer can learn and grow in directions that interest them. All of us, along with the staff, care deeply about each of these wonderful animals and celebrate every adoption." – Katie A.
If you would like to join our team of volunteers, please read the Current Volunteer Needs page and complete a volunteer application. When your application is complete, please return it to the Shelter or Thrift Store. Once your application is approved and a volunteer position is available, the Volunteer Manager will contact you to schedule a mandatory volunteer orientation.
The time that you dedicate as a Humane Society of Central Oregon Volunteer will improve the lives of the animals in our community. (If you have court ordered community service hours click here.)
