Volunteering at Union County Humane Society

Volunteering with UCHS Gifts of your time and talent are critical to our success. Your time is just as valuable as money and supplies, particularly if you have a certain skill that we can use! Just like any other facility, we have repair issues, maintenance issues and things just happen to break down and fall apart. If you can donate your time to help with these sorts of things, or with adoption events, special events, dog walking or anything else, please submit an application!
