Interested in Volunteering?
Welcome to our volunteer page! Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Leesburg Humane Society. The work we accomplish would not be possible without the dedication of time, love, and support of our volunteers.
Since we began, our volunteers have been at the forefront of our success. There are two main areas to choose from:
1. Dogs (walking, grooming, playtime)
2. Cats (socializing, grooming, playtime)
Volunteer hours are from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM, 7 days a week. You can choose to come in for an hour or 5 hours, it's up to you! We appreciate any time that you can give our animals.
New volunteers are required to fill out an application before scheduling an orientation. We feel that giving our volunteers an on-site orientation helps them understand our mission and allows the volunteer to become better prepared for their chosen area.
Orientation is usually around an hour to an hour and a half, depending on the number of new volunteers that we have. The volunteer will receive and discuss our welcome packet, become oriented to our facility and meet the staff (if they are not to busy, they give 110% everyday). In addition to the basics of being part of our team, each volunteer coordinator will then divide the group into either cats or dogs.
Kathy will direct the cat volunteers where the cat rooms are and discuss procedures, safe practices, and answer any questions that you may have.
William will direct the dog volunteers to the kennel areas and discuss procedures, safe practices, show and discuss the personality of each dog, take a tour of our grounds, and ensure a good fit by shadowing new volunteers as they begin interacting with our dogs. All new dog volunteers are given an additional packet that contains basic training material, a kennel layout with each dogs name and where they are located, and information about behaviors of each dog.
