Become a Shelter Volunteer
Current Volunteer Resources

Thank You for Your Interest in Volunteering!

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 we are currently no longer taking new applications for volunteers at this time. Thank you.

Humane Animal Rescue is very proud of the commitment and dedication of our volunteers.

Over 500 individuals have chosen to help us come to the rescue of thousands of animals
per year. There are 3 basic ways to volunteer. Through our Shelter, Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, or as a Foster.

Each position has training, scheduling and physical requirements, please explore them further below:

Volunteer at a Shelter

At our shelters, we have an enhanced safety and training program to provide new skills and learning, and to increase the adopt-ability of our animals. Our animal handling volunteers will become more skilled in understanding animal behavior and communications and how to help modify behavior problems and fearfulness.

Volunteer at Our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center

At our Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, volunteers receive hands on experience working with Pennsylvania’s native wildlife and have the satisfaction of helping these injured and orphaned wild animals, who probably would not survive otherwise.

We are not taking applications at this time due to Covid-19.


We depend on a unique and dedicated group of foster volunteers to help us save more lives! By fostering a homeless animal, you can experience the joys of being a pet parent without the lifetime of responsibility.
