Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! We love our volunteers and could not operate to the full extent that we do without them — they are the heart and center of operations here at Seattle Humane. Volunteers are involved in almost everything we do, from animal care to administrative support, our veterinary clinic to events, and more! 

Join Our Team

Applications are closed for now while we onboard our newest volunteer team members. Volunteer openings will be posted again on December 6, 2021 – we hope you’ll check back then!


Email volunteers[email protected] or call (425) 649-7557.  

Youth Opportunities

To volunteer, you must be at least 18 years of age. However, through our youth and educational programs, we have many opportunities for those under 18 who want to get involved and earn community service hours. To learn more, check out our Youth Programs or contact [email protected].  

Group Opportunities

Please note that Seattle Humane does not offer volunteer opportunities for court-ordered community service.
