Do you love animals? Would you love to help homeless animals in our shelter by assisting our staff in making it an animal-friendly environment?

Shelter Assistant Volunteers assist with tasks like washing dishes, doing laundry, preparing Kongs (treat toys) for dogs and more. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know Animal Humane Society and the work we do in animal welfare. For most volunteers this is an entry-level position before being promoted to animal care with dogs, cats, and/or critters (rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds). For other volunteers who don't want a regular schedule, this is a great opportunity to volunteer a couple times a month based on your random availability

Description

The Animal Humane Society is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to the welfare of all animals. The Society seeks to maintain and develop programs and facilities which promote and expand the human/animal bond. Incorporated in 1891 as the Minneapolis Humane Society, the organization was known as the Animal Rescue League for many years. In 1965 the name was changed to the Animal Humane Society of Hennepin County. In 1999, the name was officially changed to Animal Humane Society, in part to clarify the fact that the organization is not part of the county government and is not supported by tax dollars.
