Restrictions for our Volunteers

Town and Country Humane Society is a private, non-profit, all-volunteer organization. We accept a limited number of new volunteers when we are open due to our decrease in training staff during the pandemic. If an organization has sent you to earn volunteer or community service hours we can accommodate by offering credit for chore based tasks.
