Volunteer Programs

Adult Volunteers

Longmont Humane Society could not provide the outstanding services and quality of life to the thousands of animals that we care for each year without the support of our dedicated volunteer community. Volunteers offer their assistance in nearly all areas of our organization, including caring for shelter animals, helping with special events and providing administrative and veterinary clinic support.

Adult or adult with child volunteers are asked to make a minimum commitment of one regular shift per week for 6 months in direct care positions. Of course, you are welcome to stay on longer too! 

It’s Easy to Get Started! 
1) Please complete and submit the appropriate online application – Adult Volunteer with Child 8- 12 Years, Adult Volunteer
2) Attend an orientation! Orientations are held monthly either in person or virtually depending upon Covid protocols at the time. Please make sure to include a valid email address in your application so we may connect with you on the next steps and registration information for orientation. 

We look forward to having you join our team! Questions? Please email volunteers@longmonthumane.org or call us at 303-772-1232 x278.
