At each volunteer orientation, we provide an overview of The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County’s programs and services, answer frequently asked questions about our shelter, review available volunteer opportunities, and provide animal handling training. We offer general volunteer training as well as specialized training should you want to walk our dogs or learn how to become one of our bottle baby foster parents. Sign up by completing this form online with your requested orientation date:

After orientation, you will need to purchase your volunteer equipment. This includes a green volunteer t-shirt for the general volunteers or a yellow dog walker t-shirt and approved leash if working with our dogs. These supplies must be purchased prior to your first volunteer shift. All volunteers are required to fill out a volunteer application, waiver of liability, and commit to a minimum of 4 hours of service per month.
