    We are in desperate need of volunteers at our facility. The weekday am shifts are in the worst shape for volunteers. We have something for everyone at our animal shelter. We are very flexible no matter what your schedule is. Most people think that its a life time commitment and it does not have to be. If you can come out once a week that is great or even once a month that is also great. We also struggle with our weekend shifts and need help both in the AM and in the PM. If you like the dogs we can use you to walk, feed, socializing, help with veterinarian visits and also fostering. If you are a cat person, you can help clean the cattery, comb the cats, feed, help with veterinarian visits and fostering. Please consider giving just a little bit of your time to help our furry residents here at the Salem County Humane Society.

    Volunteer Opportunities

    Since the Salem County Humane Society has no paid personnel, volunteers are needed to effectively keep the shelter running. Several volunteer opportunities exist such as:

    • Performing daily activities such as feeding and exercising the animals, cleaning the building to maintain a sanitary environment, and mainly loving all the dogs and cats.
    • Taking dogs and cats to scheduled veterinary appointments.
    • Performing maintenance to the building.
    • Participating in community events to increase awareness about the shelter.
    • Providing temporary foster homes for animals recovering from surgery or illness.

    If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us by calling us at the phone number in the right column, or by emailing us. We will have a questionnaire for you to fill out. If you would like to see it now, or perhaps print it so you can fill it out and bring it with you to the shelter, then please click on the link below. (Please note: You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader; most likely, your web browser already has it.)
