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.

Step 2: You will receive a link to register for our next Volunteer Orientation.

Volunteer of the Month
HSOY would like to thank our October Volunteer of the Month, Karen Ortiz! Karen is our extremely talented and dedicated Glamour Team photographer. Karen owns Azure Sky Imagery- Newborn, Children, and Pet Portrait Photography and has spent the last several years donating her precious time to the shelter. Her weekly photos help to show shelter animals in their best light so they have a better chance at finding their fur-ever homes.
Thank you Karen! We truly appreciate everything you do for the homeless pets of Yuma!
