Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Animal Friends Humane Society!
In order to have better understanding of who Animal Friends is and their practices and procedures, Volunteers must attend an orientation prior to assisting us. Below is a list of upcoming orientation dates. Orientation dates are usually released a month at a time. All orientations are held at the shelter. Our address is 1820 Princeton Road, Hamilton, OH 45011.
Some things to know about being a new volunteer at AFHS:
All volunteers MUST BE at least 16 years of age. We DO NOT allow anyone under the age of 16 to volunteer regardless of a parent being present.
