Get Involved - Volunteer!

Please note:  Due to COVID-19, we are not currently enrolling new volunteers.

Do you have a passion for helping animals and people?

Dakin Humane Society is home to over 500 registered volunteers, who make it possible for Dakin to serve more than 20,000 animals and their people each year. Volunteers can be found in all departments from hands-on work with shelter animals and foster care, to duties in our administrative offices and events. Volunteer opportunities include weekly, monthly, and flexible on-call work.
