Volunteers are an essential part of the Blue Ridge Humane Society family.

Our Volunteer Program offers a wide variety of opportunities to use unique talents and skills to enhance the quality of life for animals in Henderson County.

We love to see families and friends volunteering together! We welcome volunteers ages 7 and up for some of our volunteer roles. Volunteers ages 16 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who has also completed the appropriate volunteer training.

Still wondering whether you should give volunteering a try? Contact volunteer@blueridgehumane.org for more information.

Please note, we do not fulfill pre-trial intervention community service hours.

Our Volunteers:

  • Improve the quality of living for animals in Henderson County.
  • Make a difference in their community through our Community Support Services like our Spay/Neuter Incentive Program and Meals on Wheels Pet Pals.
  • Provide support for all departments and serve on our board and committees.
  • Help raise crucial funds in our Thrift Store.
