Volunteer with the Oktibbeha County Humane Society

Each year our shelter has hundreds of devoted community members that support our shelter though volunteering. Our volunteers play a vital role in our organizations success! Volunteers preform a wide variety of tasks from socializing/caring for shelter animals, cleaning around the shelter, taking photos and assisting with offsite adoption events.
We love volunteers of all ages! Any volunteer under the age of 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. We do ask the supervising parent or guardian also complete the steps to become a volunteer.

How do I become a volunteer?
