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.
Volunteers help us meet our mission goals of saving and enhancing the lives of both people and pets every day! Adult Volunteers are 18 years or older and can serve about 8 hours per month for six months - one year, depending on the role. There is a $40 registration fee, and training is provided for all Volunteer roles.
We recently completed a New Volunteer Recruitment Cycle and are currently training our new volunteers! Please check back again in November to learn more about what Volunteer positions will be available in the coming months and how to apply. If you have questions, please email email@example.com.
1. Become a Foster Volunteer
Foster parents are heroes and allow us to help even more animals in the community! One animal in your home allows us to rescue another into our Animal Community Center or Neighborhood Adoption Centers. Learn more.
2. Join our Doggy Day Out (DDO) Team
Volunteers give our active, large breed dogs (that tend to pull on the leash and don't quite yet understand good manners but are otherwise great dogs) a mini vacation from the shelter by taking them on day or overnight outings in the area. Hikes, beach days, some chill time in a home or dinner at a dog - friendly restaurant are all common outings our dogs enjoy.
By taking out a DDO dog, you can help them get adopted too! You’ll meet people who might be interested in adopting a DDO dog and sharing photos and videos of your DDO dog with us helps us spread the word about them on social media.
