Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

Volunteer

Your time and talents make the perfect gift.

You know how we’ve said that many times it’s a pet rescuing a person not a person rescuing a pet? The same philosophy holds true for volunteering. Your gift of time and talent not only directly helps the animals and greatly helps the organization further our mission and strengthen internal efficiencies so we can invest more in animals, but we’ll even go as far as to wager a solid guess that it’ll make you feel pretty special, too.  

Our volunteers have done amazing things for us. From cleaning cages, to dog walking, to constructing new work stations, working at special events, or assisting with clerical work – our volunteers are an invaluable part of our shelter! Our animals and our operations are better because of the people who give us their time!

Yes, our volunteers are really an example of true love in motion. Become one today!

“I’ve been volunteering here for more than a year now,” says Gary Carr. “I know it helps the organization, but what it does for me personally is indescribable. It makes me feel so good inside to know I helped an animal feel wanted, loved, worth something. And the love they give you back is very special too. I’m very happy to help with the cats I’m assigned to as well as offer other duties, such as landscaping and grounds maintenance.” - Gary
