Court Mandated Community Service

Due to Covid-19, we have suspended community service. We recommend keeping an eye on our website for updates.

Thank you for your interest in serving your mandated community service hours at the Humane Society of the Palouse. Individuals seeking to fulfill community service requirements do not participate in the volunteer program: they complete projects and tasks that do not involve any contact with the animals or the clients at the shelter.


Community Service Volunteers must read the guidelines, complete information profile, and sign the code of conduct/waiver in order to get started. Please note that the Humane Society of the Palouse reserves the right to refuse a Community Service Volunteer for any reason.


  • Community Service Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

  • Volunteers must schedule in advance

  • Time slots available are from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, Monday – Saturday

  • To sign up, please contact HSoP at 1-208-883-1166

  • HSoP reserves the right to turn away any volunteers who do not show up on time and to ask volunteers to leave early if there is not enough work available.

  • Shifts are filled on a first-come first-serve basis and HSoP can only accommodate 1 volunteer per morning.

  • Duties may include laundry, dishes, sorting donations, cleaning, and more.


Dress Protocol


  • To prevent slipping, exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals, and injuries, all Community Service Volunteers must wear flat, enclosed rubber-sole shoes at all times.

  • All Community Service Volunteers may not wear: thong sandals, flip flops, or any shoe with an open toe, torn, tattered, bleach-stained clothing, cut-off shorts, T-shirts with a controversial or offensive message, halter tops, back-less shirts, half-shirts, muscle shirts, tank tops, dangling earrings or other jewelry that may interfere with volunteer duties.
