We love our volunteers, and we could always use more! There are many opportunities for you to help, learn, and enrich the lives of the animals. Not to mention the fact that you can have a ton of fun as a volunteer at GCHS!
To get started, follow the steps below!
A note for Parents/Guardians: Our program is very independent. Please note that there will not be anyone to watch your child directly while they are volunteering. It is your responsibility as their parent/guardian to trust that they will follow all rules, conduct, and remain on the premises while they are volunteering if you are not present. If you do not trust that your minor will follow your direction, GCHS is not liable if they leave the premises at any time while they are supposed to be volunteering.
Please see the handbook for further information on age requirements.
The Gulf Coast Humane Society requires volunteers to pay a fee; which covers volunteer shirts and volunteers' supplies. The fees help fund the volunteer program and allow more resources to be expended on the animals.
Youth (14 - 17 years of age) $20.00
Parent & Minor $40.00 ($15.00 for an additional minor)
