Get Involved: Volunteer!

We have extended the suspension of our volunteer program during the pandemic. Unfortunately, we do not have a set date for welcoming volunteers back.

We are so appreciative for your service, but we are following recommendations by our local, state and national government officials and offices, and are limiting foot traffic as much as possible to reduce the chance of the virus spreading. Equine volunteers continue to assist at our farm because social distancing is easier at the farm and we have fragile foals who need frequent feedings, but volunteering at our other locations remains closed for now.

Although we are unable to welcome volunteers in our facilities right now, that doesn't mean you can't purchase a 2021 KHS Volunteer T-shirt! This colorful T-shirt, sponsored by Arbor Ridge Family Dental, has the inspiring words "Ask Me How I Save Lives." To get a T-shirt, fill out our Volunteer Membership Form.


Fostering Animals

If you are looking for another way to give back, we encourage you to consider fostering shelter animals. Foster assignments can be as little as a few days to a few months, and we are happy to work with your schedule. Learn more
