To become a volunteer, you are required to attend a Volunteer Orientation. Orientations will be held twice a month in the HSTB Conference Center (holidays and special events excluded). These dates are subject to change so please check this site frequently for any changes in dates and/or times. You are required to pre-register for the orientation.

To register, click “Register Now” on the calendar below and you will be redirected to the registration page. If the date you wish to attend does not appear in the drop down menu, that means that registration for that session is full.

Once you have registered for orientation, please complete the online Volunteer application located at the bottom of this page.

See calendar below for the next Orientation dates:

*Orientations start promptly at 10:00 AM or 5:30 PM, please make every effort to arrive on time. If you arrive late, you may be asked to attend the next orientation. Thank you!

Prior to Orientation:

Please fill out the Volunteer Application, and review the Volunteer Training Manual. On your first day of volunteering you will be given your volunteer t-shirt and name badge for a $5 donation.

Please note: You must be 16 years or older to volunteer at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

Wanted to say Hi and thank you again. It has been about a year and a half since we adopted Cullen from your facility. He continues to bring us so much joy! Here is our little guy helping with the yard work.
