January Volunteer Orientation
January 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Each year more than 600 volunteers donate nearly 40,000 hours of their time to Larimer Humane Society to help make second chances possible. Volunteers touch every aspect of our organization; we are sure to have a volunteer opportunity that’s right for you!

•All volunteers are asked to make a minimum six-month commitment to the shelter.
•Please note that most shelter volunteer positions require a minimum of two hours of service per week. Please check the volunteer position descriptions for age and time requirements.
•Volunteers between the ages of 10-15 are eligible to join our “Partner Up Program.” Partner-Up teams consist of at least one adult (parent, guardian or trusted family friend) age 18 years or over and the child. Adult and child volunteer together.
•Beginning at age 16, children may volunteer independently at the shelter in select departments without a parent or guardian.
•We’re sorry, but due to the nature of our services, children under 10 years of age are not allowed to volunteer at the animal shelter. Children may participate by providing foster care to an animal if an adult age 18 years or over joins the Foster Care program.
ABOUT VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION:
At each volunteer orientation, we provide an overview of Larimer Humane Society’s programs and services, answer frequently asked questions about our shelter, review available volunteer opportunities, and provide animal handling training.
A $25 payment for your badge, t-shirt, materials, and training will be required during orientation sign-up. This payment is non-refundable unless your start of service is denied by Larimer Humane Society due to the inability to place you. If you are registering as a Partner-Up team, the parent/guardian and child must both register.
Please note, all volunteer positions are not always recruiting. Our shelter does not have the space to have large amounts of volunteers in each department. If there is a department that you are set on, please email Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org to check on its availability.
