The Humane Society is always happy to have volunteers come out and help care for our animals. The animals like new faces as well.

Are you interested in Volunteering?  Please contact HSoP and schedule your first shift!  Due to limited space, HSoP can only accommodate so many volunteers at one time. 

Volunteer Hours are available Monday through Friday from 2:00-5:00.  We schedule three volunteers at a time.  To sign up today!

Contact HSoP (208) 883-1166

  3. While at the shelter, listen to what the staff member advises you to do. The staff member is responsible for your actions, so please do as instructed.

  4. You might hear many things while you are at the shelter, including stories about people abusing their animals and many other issues.

  5. Volunteers may not speak for the Humane Society of the Palouse, Inc. concerning its animals, policies and procedures, or other matters involving the Humane Society. These matters will be handled strictly by the staff or Board of Directors.

  6. The sick/isolation room is off limits unless otherwise instructed by a staff member.  You must follow all of our disease control procedures. This is for your safety, as well as the safety of the animals at the shelter and in your own home.

  9. Please don't answer the phone.

  10. If an animal needs special attention (fighting, nails needing to be clipped, or worse), please do not attempt to solve the problem yourself, but get a staff member to help.
