Heading TIME COMMITMENT:
The above process is for those who are interested in becoming long-term Haven Humane Society volunteers (6+ months). In addition, volunteers are asked to pledge at least two hours per week in order to remain active volunteers. If you know now that this commitment would be difficult, please consider helping us in other ways by becoming a foster parent.  You can also click here for more ways to help.

AGE REQUIREMENTS:
For the safety of our volunteers, and due to liability reasons, we require all volunteers to be ten years of age or older. Volunteers age 15 and younger are required to volunteer alongside a parent or guardian (18+) who must also go through the volunteer process. Volunteers who are 16-17 years old may volunteer without an adult on site but they must have a parent/guardian sign the liability waiver.
