Become a Volunteer

We’re so excited you’re considering volunteering at Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV). We would love for you to be a part of our awesome group of volunteers who help us fulfill our mission daily.

Become A Foster Parent

Between now and February 2017, we are only recruiting for Dog and Cat Foster Care volunteer roles. Please consider joining us by learning more, and signing up for Foster Orientation today.

Please check back here in the New Year, to learn what other volunteer roles we're recruiting for.

About our Volunteer Program

Our adult volunteers are 18 years or older and commit to about 8 hours of service per month for at least one year (although many volunteers stay with us for much longer)! There is a $40 registration fee for Volunteer Orientation, and training is provided on site for all volunteer roles.

Our volunteer needs change frequently, and we'll post our current available roles on the website so that you can decide if you'd like to apply for one of them. More details in the New Year!

Please note that we do not provide short term volunteer service, court ordered community service or restitution.
