Single Day of Service Opportunities
1. Single Day of Service Opportunities
The Western PA Humane Society welcomes families and groups of volunteers for Single Day of Service volunteering. Although we do not offer Dog Walking, Cat Cuddling, or Bunny Buddying to one-time volunteers, we provide enjoyable projects that benefit our shelter animals and are great opportunities for groups of animal-loving volunteers!
Single Day of Service opportunities must be scheduled in advance to ensure that volunteer space and materials for the projects are available. Among the projects offered are creating no-sew fleece blankets and toys for our cats, stuffing Kongs and other enrichment items for our dogs, and stuffing bath tissue and paper towel rolls with timothy hay for our bunnies' enjoyment. Included in the opportunity is a tour of the shelter and visits with shelter animals. Most opportunities last for approximately 3 - 4 hours.
We ask that Single Day of Service groups collect materials for their projects (fleece, Kongs, peanut butter), cash donations, or other items from our Wish List. Our Wish List is available on the Home Page of our shelter website -- www.wpahumane.org. Canned dog, cat, kitten, and puppy food is one of our animals' greatest needs at any time of year.
Thank you for thinking of our animals! We look forward to receiving your Single Day of Service request.
Please submit this application online, or if you've chosen to fill out a paper application you may send it to us or return it in person.
