Community Service

The Atlanta Humane Society provides opportunities to complete community service for those needing documented hours for:

  • School
  • Court-ordered community service
  • A club or civic organization

Please note that you must be 18 or older in order to participate in community service.

Starting Your Community Service: Register for Orientation

If you are looking to participate in our community service, you are required to first register for and attend a short one-hour orientation. Orientations are held at both our West Midtown and Alpharetta locations. We ask that you arrive for orientation 15-20 minutes early to complete paperwork. You need to pre-register through our Eventbrite page. Latecomers will not be permitted to attend.


For Court-ordered Community Service:

  • We are only able to accept traffic citations, DUI citations, and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
  • Please bring a picture ID and proof of your citation (paperwork that verifies the type of citation you received, hours required, and the name/number of any caseworker or attorney you may have) to orientation.

For University or Civic Organization Community Service:

  • Bring a picture ID and applicable school or club paperwork or contact information for verification to orientation.

Once you attend a Community Service Orientation, you’ll receive a link to sign up for your community service hours. These hours are available 7 days a week, including holidays.

Our Community Service volunteers help with:

  • Cleaning enclosures
  • Washing dishes
  • Folding laundry
  • Shredding newspaper
  • Filling water dishes
  • And other various duties as assigned

Please note: The community service orientation held at the Atlanta Humane Society only grants you the ability to complete community service for the Atlanta Humane Society. The Atlanta Humane Society is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit (IRS Tax ID# 58-0685900) organization.
