We Need You


Volunteers are essential to LCHS!

Leon County Humane Society depends on the support of committed, caring people to volunteer their time, talent and energy on behalf of the animals waiting for adoption.

We know you might have special talents; maybe you like talking to people on the phone, or entering data on a computer, or doing yard work...If you want to help, we can help you find the best way for you!

If you would like to volunteer, please:
