The Humane Society of Tampa Bay offers volunteer opportunities for those seeking to fulfill community hours for either school service or court-ordered requirements. Our community service volunteers play a critical role in the daily care of our animals and grounds, and are welcome at our facilities.
STUDENT COMMUNITY SERVICE
This program is open to students ages 16* and older who need community service hours for school or for a scholarship.
For these students, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay offers a daily shift working with our kennel staff to get the shelter cleaned each morning.
The shift is from 8am through 12pm, and we allow four students to volunteer for this shift each day.
Students do not need to attend a Volunteer Open House for this program.
