Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Seattle Humane!

Seattle Humane is currently open by appointment only as we continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19 in our region. In order to do our part to reduce the spread of this virus and minimize in-person interactions between people, we have suspended recruitment for all of our volunteer programs except Foster Parents. Please be assured that the pets in our care are continuing to receive the same amount of love and care that they can always expect from our staff and current volunteers!

If you are interested in volunteering on campus or for special events…

We would love to have you join us in the future! We anticipate volunteer recruitment to re-open once normal operations at the shelter resume. Please leave your email on our Volunteer Interest Form and we'll send you a message once applications for these programs have re-opened. 

If you are interested in becoming a Foster Parent for cats, dogs, or small mammals….

We welcome you to complete the following application today! Please allow up to 7 business days for us to contact you. Please note that the majority of our pets are already in foster care and we may not have an animal available for you to take home immediately. We encourage you to complete the onboarding process now so that you may be ready when additional needs arise.

Question Title

Acceptance into Seattle Humane's volunteer program is dependent on passing a background check, completion of our New Volunteer Orientation training materials, and signing of volunteer agreements and waivers.
