We Need Your Help!

How great would it feel to help a pet find its perfect family? Or work a special event that raised funds for the pets in our care? Whether it’s kennels or clerical, we can always use more help. There are so many ways you can help as a volunteer.
We could not do everything we do for pets and the people who love them without you, our extraordinary, dedicated volunteers. In fact, Volunteers donate nearly 50,000 hours a year. Volunteer today!

Volunteering at HSEP

We’re so excited that you are interested in joining our volunteer pack! The Humane Society of El Paso Volunteer Program is a tiered program that gives volunteers the opportunity and flexibility to give back in an area they love. To volunteer at the Humane Society of El Paso you must be 13-years or older. Minors 15-year and younger must volunteer with a parent or guardian. Volunteers 16-year and older are able to volunteer on their own.

All of our volunteers start out as Whisker Warriors where they learn the in’s and out’s of the Humane Society. From there you can go on to be a Tail Wagger, Pur-fect Pal, or more!
