Volunteer Programs

COVID precautions are being observed at LHS. If fully vaccinated, volunteers are not required to wear a mask while at LHS. If you are feeling ill, please stay home until you are feeling well. *Fully vaccinated means that you are two weeks out from your second round of vaccination.

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.

Teen Volunteers

Our Teen Volunteer Program is designed for teens 13 to 18 years of age (18 & still in high school). Currently, teen volunteers account for 35% of all hours contributed by volunteers with the animals in our shelter. Volunteer opportunities for teens 13-18 years of age include working in our Dog TLC and Junior Animal Care Assistant Programs as well as in a variety of promotional programs.
