West Columbia Gorge Humane Society is an organization which runs mainly through the efforts of volunteers—people who give their time and hearts to support and help our mission. Individuals and families willing to give a few hours will find their skills and talents make a huge difference.
How to volunteer
To join our team, please complete the Application Packet and review/sign the Handbook below. Completed applications can be brought to Volunteer Orientation sessions or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All volunteers are asked to attend a one-hour orientation to learn more about our organization as well as current volunteer openings and organizational needs. Minors under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult at Orientation and also at volunteer activities.
Once you have attended a Volunteer Orientation session and completed the necessary paperwork, our Volunteer Committee will contact you to schedule you for the tasks that you are interested in.
Orientation sessions are held the first Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the Vancouver Police Department East Precinct Community Room, 520 SE 155th Avenue (at corner of Mill Plain) in Vancouver.
Please see our events calendar for the date of our next Volunteer Orientation session. No registration is necessary. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with West Columbia Gorge Humane Society to help the animals in our care!
