Volunteer at the Joplin Humane Society
Want to volunteer at the Joplin Humane Society? At the Joplin Humane Society, we are proud to have the support of so many wonderful volunteers. Our dedicated volunteers make a commitment to help our organization by touching the lives of both pets and people every day. Their decision to put their concern for animal welfare into action by offering to donate time is such an important asset to us. We have many opportunities for volunteers at JHS.
Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering with the Joplin Humane Society! Our success depends on YOU! If you are ready to volunteer, there are many opportunities for you to help the animals either at the shelter, at an off-site event or even from home!
How do I get started? Please fill out an application to begin the process of becoming a JHS Volunteer or you can visit the shelter and apply in person. We appreciate your patience as we build and focus our volunteer corps for the betterment of the animals.
