Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the heart of the Atlanta Humane Society. We offer a variety of ways for you to show compassion and save lives, from hands-on volunteering in our adoption centers to advocating for the animals in our community. You are the reason that Atlanta’s cats and dogs have the chance to thrive, and we thank you for your support.

Ready to get started?

We are currently doing volunteer orientations at our Alpharetta location only.

We have had an incredible amount of interest in our volunteer orientations and are currently onboarding a large number of volunteers. Because of this, our volunteer orientations are currently on hold. Please check back on September 6.
