Our Mission is to Promote and Provide the Responsible Care and Treatment of Animals

Volunteer Volunteer Positions

Volunteer With Us!

Do you most enjoy working directly with animals in the shelter environment, or are you best suited for a climate-controlled office? Are you a clean-freak who loves the chance to scrub, launder, and sweep? Are you a student looking for experience with animals? Perhaps you’re more of a “people person” who relishes the opportunity to educate others about Larimer Humane Society’s mission and services. No matter what your interests, there are many different opportunities through which you can donate your time and skills to our organization.

Please review our volunteer position descriptions and learn about age, training and shift requirements. Please note that volunteer positions within certain departments may be full at the time of your orientation. We provide a list of all volunteer positions that are currently open at each volunteer orientation.
