General Volunteer

Want to volunteer at the Lynchburg Humane Society? To qualify you must be at least 16 years old, have a love for pets, and a desire to help. After filling out the appropriate applications on our website, you will complete a digital orientation and sign up for a First Day Shift to meet the Volunteer Coordinator, receive your Volunteer Lanyard, take a tour of the building, and ask any questions you may have before beginning.

Please visit our website to view the volunteer program that best fits your needs:

For questions about volunteering at the Lynchburg shelter please contact

Volunteer Training Fee (does not apply to foster volunteers)

As part of the volunteer application process, we require a one-time volunteer training fee of $10 ($25 for CSER & Court/ School Ordered Volunteers) to help offset the costs of administrative processing, training materials, applicable background check fees, your volunteer badge, volunteer program maintenance, and other costs that leave a footprint in our finances so more can go toward animal care. We hope it is a small price to pay for wagging tails, sloppy kisses, purrs, and warm feelings every time you volunteer! For your convenience you can pay your volunteer fee online.

Volunteers also receive 10% off all purchases in our retail store in addition to continued educational opportunities at the Lynchburg Humane Society.
