Volunteers Needed

The Humane Society of West Alabama is always in need of volunteers.  If you have time and want to help, check out these opportunities for volunteers. If you can help, contact our volunteer coordinator. CLICK HERE to fill out a volunteer application.

NOTE: The Humane Society particularly needs volunteers who can help with the cats at the cat adoption center and with the dogs at our dog adoption center. These animals depend on us; we need volunteers who won't let them down.

Look here for general information on our craft sale fundraisers.  You can help.
