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 due to a decrease in our training staff. If an organization has sent you to earn volunteer or community service hours we can accommodate by offering credit for chore based tasks.
