Volunteer at The Humane Society


Dear Volunteers,

It is an absolute fact that volunteers are a vital part of the Galveston Island Humane Society organization and we continue to work to develop a program that will utilize your time and skills.

With the reorganization that followed Hurricane Ike and our move to a temporary building, we have been developing a team of great volunteers for our organization. Since our new shelter facility is in the works, to be opened in late 2010 or early 2011, our volunteer team will be even more important as our organization grows.

Our coordinator, Sandy McReynolds, will be happy to have you join the GIHS in any facet of the program that suits your interests. Orientations are conducted twice each month; on a Saturday morning, and a Wednesday evening. The orientation is designed to introduce interested parties to the many ways they may participate and become part of our mission to help the homeless animals of the Island. *Orientation is a requirement for volutneers.

If you are interested in becoming a part of our volunteer team, please complete and submit the on-line Volunteer Application, print and mail a copy, or drop by our facility to complete the form. Sandy will contact concerning dates of the next orientation.

We look forward to having you as a part of our team.

Caroline Dorsett-Pate
Executive Director
