Become a Volunteer

Volunteers at Hinsdale Humane Society are vital to our organization. With their help, we are able to provide continued care, love and attention to our four legged friends until they find their forever homes.

We welcome fellow animal lovers and friends to join our special group of compassionate volunteers.

"When I volunteer, I feel so needed. Volunteering allows me to give the animals a chance to be loved, hugged, and cared for just for who they are. It’s the part of my week I most look forward to."
Diane Novak,
Volunteer Dog Walker

Steps to Become a Volunteer

  1. Attend the Volunteer Orientation Program to learn about opportunities and answer any questions. Volunteer orientations are held on an as-needed basis throughout the year. As volunteer needs arise, orientations will be scheduled. Our Upcoming Events page is updated regularly and orientation dates will be posted.
  2. After you attend the Volunteer Orientation you will then complete and submit the Volunteer Application, including a $25 application fee. The fee helps to cover the cost of training and your volunteer T-shirt. 
    You will not be contacted unless you've filled out an application, attended the volunteer orientation and submitted your fee.
  3. Attend additional training depending on the volunteer opportunity in which you are interested.
