Through our volunteer programs, you will become familiar with The Humane Society Serving Logan County, as well as learn about the homeless animal population problem. You will learn the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals, and animal behavior. This in turn will enable you to become a valuable Animal Ambassador, who can educate the public, about the care and responsibility of owning a companion animal. The work that you will be doing here, will greatly impact the community in which we live in. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Whether your knack is stuffing envelopes, cuddling with the cats, walking dogs, or working on special projects, you are making a positive contribution and difference in the lives of the animals at the shelter. The Humane Society Serving Logan County relies heavily upon caring and compassionate individuals to assist us in our mission of providing healthy, sound animals for adoption. Your gift of time, energy and talent helps to promote the shelter in a positive way to the public.
New Program called "Overnight Foster Program" See Peggy Leasure
Please let us know if you are interested in a fun volunteer event complete with an "overnight companion".
I recently read about a program which was initiated by the Pet Smart
Charities Organization....."The Over Night Foster Program". Basically, it is this.............the night before an adoption event, the volunteer who is doing the event
the following day, will be permitted to take home one of the dogs who will be involved in that event. That volunteer will have the opportunity to bathe, play with, love and give
the dog the attention, preparation and primping he/she deserves before the "big day". The Over Night Foster Program will give the volunteer a chance to get to know the personality and
temperment of their "friend", hence, giving our Adoption Event a step-up to pair the potential "pet parent" with our shelter friend.
This is an "individual decision".....no one is required to participate in this program. If you would just rather be part of the event day pick up of a "friend " at the shelter....that is fine also. If you are volunteering for an event..either way is much appreciated.
You must be a volunteer for the particular event to be eligible to foster the dog for the night.
Any volunteer who is involved in the "Over Night Foster Program" must be approved by Lori Plummer, our Executive Director.
