Volunteer with us!

Volunteers are the heart of AHS

Volunteers are the heart of AHS and without their time, talents, and resources we would not be able to save the lives of over 3,000 animals each year. Whether you have a free day on the weekend or an occasional hour after work, there is a place for you at AHS. Join us today to help change an animal’s life forever.
