Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program!

We are currently in the process of improving the program. Please check back soon to see our updated list of volunteer opportunities. In the meantime, you can start the application process by downloading the appropriate form below:

Ages 16 and Up   Under 16 with Adult Supervision   Court Ordered
Please apply in person at Shelby Humane Society.

ALL applicants must also complete the Waiver of Liability Form.

Completed forms may be submitted via email to Casey Krause, CKrause@shelbyhumane.org, or by fax to (205) 669-3819. Once we have reviewed your application, we will be in touch to notify you of our decision.

You can also support SHS through the School Community Service Give Me Five Program

If you are interested in fulfilling community service hours for school and are 16 years old or older, you can apply to volunteer through the adult application above. If you are younger than 16, you may submit an application to volunteer with an adult for your hours (see youth application above).

In addition, students grades K-12 may obtain a maximum of five volunteer hours by hosting a fundraiser or supply drive for SHS. In the past students have held supply drives to obtain items from our wish-list, and have also organized lemonade stands or other fundraisers to raise money for items on our wish-list.


During your drive, take pictures of you working with the community to gather supplies, then send the pictures to CKrause@shelbyhumane.org and schedule a day to drop off your donations!
