Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with San Diego Humane Society. The work we accomplish would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers. We have three campus locations, employ over 500 staff and rely on more than 5,000 volunteers for their time, love, and support.

Compassionate, dedicated volunteers are essential to our programs and services organization wide and it is important to us that volunteering be a meaningful experience for everyone who participates.

We recruit new volunteers on an as needed basis giving us time to meet the hundreds of people who express interest and make sure they are placed in an appropriate role and properly trained before they begin.
