Becoming a Volunteer with the Halifax Humane Society: Daytona Beach, Florida

How To Get Started!

Volunteers are a vital asset to the animals at HHS and make our programs possible!

To become an Halifax Humane Society volunteer you must be 18 years of age or older (or 14 and accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times while volunteering), be willing to make a commitment of time, and attend the volunteer orientation classes at the shelter.


To apply to volunteer please fill out our volunteer application and email to kiml@halifaxhumanesociety.org


 

Volunteering begins by completing four introductory classes: HHS101 Orientation, PET111 Dog Walking, PET112 Cat Socialization, and CSV 221 Customer Service. Class schedules are available at the shelter and are generally held from 1-4 p.m. on a weekday or Saturday each month. We will invite you to upcoming dates for orientation classes and times upon completion and return of your volunteer application to the HHS Volunteer Manager.

Upon completing the introductory courses, volunteers can sign up for additional courses to be held at a later date, which will make them eligible for advanced administrative and customer service tasks and offsite events.

Class size is limited and registration is required and considered with the return of your application and an invitation to the Orientation Classes.
