Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Humane Society of Yuma (HSOY). We care for an average of 8,700 abandoned animals annually, all of which would not be possible without the dedication and passion of our volunteers. We are grateful for the enthusiasm our volunteers bring to the organization and their willingness to share their experience with us daily.
We have several opportunities available for prospective volunteers to become involved and make a difference with the animals. You can work directly with the animals at our shelter or one of our offsite locations, there are also volunteer opportunities available within various departments assisting staff and management with daily operations.
You must be 12 years of age to volunteer at the shelter and must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. You can volunteer independently at the shelter if you are 16 years of age or older. ALL volunteers at our Petsmart Everyday Adoption Center MUST be 18 years of age or older.

Volunteer of the Month
HSOY would like to thank our March Volunteer of the Month, Lyn Speakman! Lyn has been with the HSOY Thrift Store since the beginning. She helped set up our first store and was involved in the design and set up of our new store as well. She has been with us going on 9+ years! She is a loyal and dedicated volunteer willing to do whatever it takes to help the store make money. Decorating and organizing our merchandise is what she does for fun! Thanks, Lyn! We appreciate everything you do for the shelter.
