Volunteering with MHS

Whether you wish to work at a Michigan Humane Society adoption center, our administrative office, or at special events, the MHS Volunteer Program provides a wide variety of opportunities for concerned, caring individuals to help make a difference in the lives of animals today.

MHS offers a structured, well-supported program and truly appreciates our dedicated volunteers who help us change animal lives every day. In order for MHS to provide the best possible program for the animals and volunteers alike, potential volunteers will fill out an online application, and register for a welcome meeting; depending on your interests and open volunteer positions, further training may be required.

Getting Started

To get started, you’ll need to complete the form below and follow this link for a routine background check, which we conduct to help ensure volunteer, employee and companion animal safety. When completing your background check you’ll need to create an account. Please use this code – alvutn0 – when prompted.

You will be charged a $15 fee for the background check. This fee offsets the cost to MHS in its continuing efforts to maintain fiscal responsibility and to restrict unnecessary expenditures. We strive to make only the most critical of expenses, and we appreciate your understanding and support of this effort. Once again, thank you from all of the animals at MHS for your time and interest!
