Thank you for your interest in our volunteer program!  We are glad you want to join our life-saving team!

Please complete our Volunteer Application and Waiver of Liability.  All volunteers must purchase a $10 volunteer t-shirt and wear it for the duration of their shift.  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.



All court ordered volunteers must apply in person at Shelby Humane Society. 

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

Sudents 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!
