Humane Society of Greater Kansas City

The shelter needs volunteers to help socialize and exercise the animals and to provide other assistance to the staff. Walking dogs (must be 18 years of age or older), petting and grooming cats, or doing laundry, filing, paperwork and outside yard work are some of the ways volunteers help.

We need volunteers to help with our satellite adoptions, which generally take place on Saturdays. This opportunity involves hanging out with dogs and cats at other locations in order to try to find homes for them. Volunteers can also prepare the pets for these events by bathing and grooming them at our shelter. We need persons who are especially comfortable and experienced with dogs.

  • Must be16 years of age or older
  • Must attend volunteer orientation and training sessions (scheduled twice each month):
    • The second Saturday of each month at 10:30 am
    • The fourth Thursday of each month at 10:30 am
