Thank you for your interest in becoming a PAWS Humane volunteer. We truly appreciate those who are able to donate their time and help the homeless pets of PAWS Humane.To begin volunteering at PAWS, you must be at least 16 years of age and attend one of our Volunteer Orientations from the schedule below. Please click the link below to sign up for orientation. PAWS volunteers are required to wear a volunteer t-shirt, which must be purchased prior to volunteering. The cost is $10.80. If you are under the age of 16 and would like to learn more about project opportunities, please email volunteer@pawshumane.org.

Orientation will begin promptly and doors will close at 5:30pm. In order to take full advantage of our condensed session, please be sure to arrive 5-10 minutes early. Orientation will last approximately one hour and includes a tour of the facility.

Special note: Ages 16 or 17 must have a parent or legal guardian come to orientation to sign the youth waiver release form. However, they do not have to stay for the entire orientation.
