Volunteering for Pets

Whether you walk dogs at your shelter, stuff envelopes for an educational mailing or assist with a fund-raising event, you can make a difference in the lives of animals. When you give animals the gift of your time, you'll get back as much as you give—maybe even more.

Here are just a few of the benefits of volunteering:

  • Be part of the solution. You'll join a network of hundreds of thousands of people working to make the world safe and more humane for all living creatures. You'll make the jobs of everyone working for animals a little easier by lending a hand and spreading the message of responsible pet ownership.
  • Get warm fuzzies. You'll never find a more grateful and accepting comrade than an animal you have comforted. Who can't use another loyal support in life?
  • Keep good company. You'll make lots of new friends—and not just the four-legged kind. Working side by side with people who share similar interests can forge lifelong friendships.
  • Meet the new you. You'll discover skills you never knew you had, and you may be surprised at what you're capable of achieving.
  • Gain a new career. You'll learn things that may lead you to the career—or career change—of your dreams. Employers and college admissions officers look favorably on time spent in volunteer service.
    Enjoy a wagging tail, a purr, and a smile. Didn't someone once say that the best things in life are free?

Kootenai Humane Society

The focus of all of Kootenai Humane Society's efforts and resources is directed toward improving the quality of life for all abandoned or mistreated pets in our area.  The ultimate goal is finding each pet a loving household for a permanent home.

Kootenai Humane Society (KHS) is a non-profit organization funded exclusively by donations and grants. KHS receives numerous homeless animals everyday. They shelter, feed and provide medical care for these animals while searching for loving homes for them.

As a no-kill shelter, the dogs and cats are cared for until they have been placed into a suitable adoptive home. 

Kootenai Humane Society needs volunteers and has 25 different ways you can help.
