Do you love animals? Do you have free time that you want to use to help a great cause? Then the Baltimore Humane Society (BHS), a non profit, no kill shelter in Reisterstown, MD, has some great volunteer opportunities for you! You can come to the shelter in Reisterstown any day of the week and spend some time with the homeless dogs, cats, or small animals. Volunteering at BHS has flexible scheduling that allows you to volunteer at your own leisure! Can’t get to Reisterstown? Another alternative is to make enrichment toys from home if you can't come on location. Enrichment toys are for both cats and dogs. Their purpose is to help keep the animals busy and interested. This helps alleviate the stress often felt in shelters and keeps them much happier Baltimore Humane Society takes in animals whose owners are no longer able to care for them. Whether you're stuffing Kongs for dogs, petting a cat, snuggling a rabbit, greeting visitors, helping with administrative tasks, assisting in our veterinary center, or making cat or dog toys at home, you're making a contribution to the healthier, happier lives for the animals in our care! Being a volunteer at BHS is a rewarding experience for people of all ages, as well as the animals. We have specialized training classes to work with the animals of your choice, which you may also find useful for the animals you might already have in your life. There is a special training class for cats, a special class for rabbits and other small animals, and three classes for dogs. We also offer several educational and social events throughout the year.

About Baltimore Humane Society



Mission Statement

Provide a temporary home, a safe refuge, and care for homeless animals. Work aggressively to place each animal that comes to our shelter in a loving, permanent home. Strive to end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals by promoting and offering affordable spaying and neutering to control the population of unwanted animals in our area and addressing the issues that cause people to give up animals. Advance the cause of the humane treatment of animals and increase awareness of animal issues through public education. Ensure a peaceful final resting place for beloved companion animals through the operation of a beautiful and well-maintained cemetery for companion animals.


Since its founding in 1927 by Elsie Seeger Barton, the Humane Society of Baltimore County has provided for the care of suffering and homeless animals. Situated on 365 acres of land held in trust for the Humane Society, it operates an animal shelter, a spay/neuter center, a pet cemetery, and a 345-acre wildlife sanctuary. The Humane Society is dependent on donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations, and income from fundraising events to support animal care operations.We are a private, non-profit, volunteer based organization.
