​What is more rewarding than making a difference in an animal's life? You can volunteer in so many ways - from handing out literature at adoption events, to fostering dogs that need that extra TLC. Some of our volunteers only have a few hours once a week to dedicate and others help out by transporting our dogs to the vet to be spayed or neutered. We appreciate all that they do. It's a great way to make friends who love dogs and feel good about helping out. To volunteer at the Meridian Valley Humane Society, you must be at least 16 years old, have a valid photo ID and be able to pass a criminal background check.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please come to one of our scheduled Information Nights.  These sessions give you a basic overview of volunteering responsibilities.  It's your chance to get to know us before deciding to commit.  Our next Information Night sessions are:
