Volunteers are vital to the Humane Society of Washington County and our mission of becoming a no kill community. They help us to raise funds for our programs, assist with adoption events and transportation of animals. We could not exist without the time, effort, enthusiasm and expertise that each volunteer commits to giving. If you love animals and like working with people, please consider becoming a volunteer with the Humane Society of Washington County. We are experiencing exciting growth and we have many needs now and new opportunities on the horizon.
