Volunteering for London Humane Society

Volunteers are essential to the continued success of our shelter.

London Humane Society has many volunteer positions available to animal lovers in London and area. Some of these volunteer opportunities involve direct contact with the animals in our care, while others are concerned with fundraising and event organization.

Volunteer activities range from regular visits to the shelter to socialize with cats and small animals or walk dogs to volunteering on an as-needed basis for our events.

Please note: we do have a waiting list for in-shelter opportunities.
