Request To Book A Volunteer Group At LHS

Thank you for thinking of the Lexington Humane Society for your group volunteer project!

We love having businesses, organizations, and corporations volunteer their time with us in support of our mission!

To schedule your service group, please contact the Director of Community Engagement at [email protected]

Please allow 4-5 business days for a response.

Advanced reservations are required. We will do our best to accommodate the requested date, and/or offer alternative dates that work best for both parties.

Thank you for your interest in helping LHS and the animals we all love so much!

Requirements & Guidelines

  • All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.
  • Group size. We ask that service groups be limited to groups of 8-10 at a time, if possible. We will specify if more help is needed for various projects.
  • Wear comfy clothes! When you come to volunteer at the shelter or at community events, there are a variety of things you might be asked to assist with as a service group. Service group activities could possibly include dog playtime, kennel cleanup, cat cuddling and grooming, small animals socialization, grounds cleanup and maintenance, laundry, washing food bowls, lobby cleaning, helping with events, etc. For your safety, please wear closed-toed shoes when volunteering.
  • 2 hour time slots. Most service groups will be scheduled for a minimum of 2 hours, sometimes longer for fundraising events. More options available upon request.
  • Donations. Please consider bringing a monetary donation or items from our wish list for the animals when you visit.
