We are so glad you are considering volunteering with Eaton County Humane Society. We are a small shelter and rely greatly on our volunteers.
We believe that our volunteers are the core of ECHS. The animals of our shelter will benefit from your time, love and dedication to them.
That's why we all do this - For The Animals!
Before volunteering, all volunteers must attend an ECHS orientation. To volunteer alone, you must be 18yrs or older. If you are under 18 years, you can volunteer with a parent or guardian. Both minor & parent must also attend a volunteer orientation.
