Volunteering at the Spartanburg Humane Society

What Better Way To Volunteer!The work that the SHS accomplishes would not be possible without the generous contributions of our volunteers.  By joining our team, you will help us provide lifesaving services and meaningful programs to pets and people throughout our community.

  • Join our winning team! On average, our volunteers give over 7,000 dedicated hours to the animals in our care each month.
  • The SHS volunteer program welcomes adults 16 years and older (opportunities for younger animal lovers are offered through our Humane Education department)
  • The first step to joining our team is to complete an online volunteer registration form.  If you prefer, you can download a registration form and mail or fax it in. We ask our volunteers to donate a $20 registration fee. Included with your registration is a SHS volunteer t-shirt, all of your training materials and a hands on training.
