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 November Volunteer of the Month, Art Sullivan! Art is a volunteer at PetSmart during the week and has so far helped several dogs find their forever homes by assisting us with meet and greets and his excellent customer service! He also donates supplies regularly to the PetSmart Adoption center to help with daily tasks such as cleaning. Art is also extremely patient with scared dogs and loves helping out in every way he can.
Thank you Art! We truly appreciate everything you do for the homeless pets of Yuma!
