Become an HSFC Volunteer
We’re so excited you’re considering volunteering at Humane Society of Forsyth County (HSFC). We would love for you to be a part of our awesome group of volunteers who help us fulfill our mission daily. The life-blood of our volunteer organization is the individual who has the passion and energy to devote their time to a cause. You could volunteer anywhere – but you are an animal lover – so ‘anywhere’ isn’t good enough. If you are passionate about helping our furry friends, we need you at the Humane Society of Forsyth County.
Here are Some Easy Steps to Get You Started as an HSFC Volunteer:
Create an on-line volunteer account by filling out the Volunteer Application above. Once you complete the application, you will receive an email with your account information and your temporary password, as well as, be contacted by our volunteer coordinator.
Once you have your account ready you can go to our on-line portal, where you can see all the different opportunities at the shelter, special events, or helping out with our business functions. From the portal you can sign up for just about anything that’s going on at the HSFC.
You will also use the portal to log time for any of the activities you work on. This is very important as it helps us obtain grants for a variety of improvement projects that will allow us to give our furry friends a safe place to live until we find them their forever home.

We do allow court ordered community service, but you must first speak directly with our shelter management for pre-approval. You can call the shelter or stop by in person for more information.
