Become a Volunteer  

Please note that volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Teens ages 13-17 can explore volunteering through our Humane Teen Club and Teens for Animals. There are many ways for kids to help the animals. Contact [email protected] if you are under 18 and would like information on earning school community service hours. Seattle Humane does not offer volunteer opportunities for court-ordered community service.

How to Get Started:

  1. Watch our Seattle Humane 101 orientation video to learn more about our program and see if volunteering at Seattle Humane will be right for you.
  2. Submit a volunteer application.
  3. A member of our team will email you within a few business days to provide more information on next steps.

Want info on group volunteering? Please know we have limited opportunities available, and cannot allow groups to work hands-on with our pets. Groups most often volunteer with our Community Outreach department in our Pet Food Bank, or with laundry and cleaning. Contact [email protected] to inquire about available group opportunities. All members of your group must be 18 years or older to volunteer on campus.
