We are so grateful to our committed volunteer team, who offer unbelieveble support and energy, taking time out of their own busy lives,  to assist our small staff team to save animals lives.

 If this sounds like you, then could be a great Cache Humane Society  volunteer!

  • Want a better chance finding a job? Volunteering is a positive attribute to add to your resume and we often recruit from our volunteer team.

  • Feeling Sad? Our animals give good hugs (so do our staff if you ask them nicely!)

  • Missing your pet, but can't adopt? As a CHS Volunteer you can take our dogs or cats on daytrips and overnight stays away from the shelter.

We aim to inspire you to bring your valuable time and energy to help Cache Humane Society. We hope to help you understand the work we do, so you can better serve the animals in our care, and so you will share your belief and passion in our cause to local and wider community.

In exchange, we will provide you with a fun and meaningful volunteer experience, in the area of shelter life that interests you most. After volunteering for 30 logged hours, over 3 months, and providing you are still a current volunteer, you become eligible for discounts on adoptions and services.  Plus you get to cuddle animals!

 

You become big part of the work which Cache Humane Society does and will gain satisfaction knowing your efforts, however large or small,  are helping animals in need.

We always express gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work, energy and time given by all our volunteers. 

Plus we often recruit for job openings from within our committed volunteer pool as they have gained first class experience and are normally the best candidates for the job. Many of our current staff team, started as volunteers!

 

WHAT MAKES A GREAT VOLUNTEER?

Being a volunteer at the Cache Humane Society can be incredibly rewarding and meaningful. You will be giving a valuable time and love to the animals and giving back to the local community either through working with  the staff and animals at the shelter, assisting in our education program or supporting our fundraising events.

A great volunteer will successfully navigate all the highs and lows of shelter life. You may discover there is no greater joy than helping a nervous animal become more confident with your time and patience and love.  Or you may experience that bitter-sweet moment,  when your favorite rescued animal gets adopted to a new forever home.  Unfortunately volunteer work at the shelter can also be, dirty, tiring, stressful, and on occasion, heartbreaking. You will need to be prepared for this too. But we hope to make the highs far outweigh the lows!
