Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Kentucky Humane Society (KHS). KHS relies on the generosity of our wonderful volunteers. We currently are accepting new volunteers on an as-needed basis. Volunteer opportunities include assisting with our low-cost spay/neuter S.N.I.P. Clinic, Pet Photography, Special Events, Canine Coach, Puppy Pals, Kitty Comfort and so much more!

If you would like to be placed on a wait list, we will contact you about any volunteer opportunities, and we will also send you information about ways to give back outside of the shelter. Thank you so much for your interest and your dedication to the Kentucky Humane Society.

Group Volunteer Opportunities

KHS has a variety of group volunteer opportunities for work teams, college groups, sports leagues and more! Whether you want to help with a beautification project or create enrichment items for our animals, we have something rewarding for you and our pets! Our Development Team will give your group a tour of one of our facilities and share more information about KHS’s mission, life-saving work and proactive solutions! Then, you will be put to work with our team and you will help save lives!
