HSHC offers a Student Volunteer Program for those students in need of completing service hours for their class requirements or club service projects. Students who wish to enter this program will be able to assist HSHC with a variety of volunteer opportunities.
Opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Support Help at our facility doing tasks such as laundry, dishes, cleaning, working in our food storage room, and helping us maintain our grounds.
- Assisting the staff in various office tasks.
- Assisting us in keeping our off-site storage units clean and organized.
- Assisting at off-site events.
Students entering the program will be required to attend a New Volunteer Orientation and provide a copy of their school or organization service hour requirements to the Volunteer Program Manager. While volunteering the student will also be required to log their service hours into Volgistics.
HSHC offers a New Volunteer Package that includes a Volunteer T-shirt (of color choice) and Name Badge for $25.00. Those participating in our Student Volunteer Program are not required to purchase this package. Students that choose not to purchase the package will be provided with a Volunteer T-shirt that will be required to be left at our facility and we will launder for their use.
Students entering the HSHC Student Volunteer Program will not be permitted to work directly with the animals in our care, however once students have completed their required service hours, HSHC welcomes students to continue volunteering with us and will give them opportunity to take our Dog and Cat Handling Classes (if over the age of 16) to be allowed to work directly with our animals.
