Due to a busy season, while being short-staffed, we are implementing new, temporary protocols at the Lexington Humane Society (LHS). The volunteer program is open on a limited basis - based on OUR needs and YOUR availability.

Time is a valuable gift to offer LHS and the animals we serve. Volunteers are very important to us and we are grateful for your commitment! 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 office 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 16 years of age.
  • LHS volunteers must complete a questionnaire.
  • LHS volunteers must abide by the shelter volunteer policies at all times.
  • LHS volunteers must commit to a minimum of four hours a month for at least a six-month period.
