Time is a valuable gift to offer the Lexington Humane Society (LHS) and the animals we serve. Volunteers are very important to LHS! Volunteers are actively involved in the general care of animals including exercising, socializing, grooming, helping with laundry, and cleaning kennels. Volunteers are also involved in special projects, events, humane education,offsite outreach programs, and perform various clerical duties. If you are ready to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals, volunteering with LHS is a great way to start.

  • LHS volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
  • LHS volunteers must complete a questionnaire, and once reviewed, attend an orientation and training class.
  • LHS volunteers must abide by the shelter volunteer policies at all times.
  • LHS volunteers must commit to a minimum of six hours a month for at least a six month period.
