Volunteer Application

Lend a Hand to Help a Paw

As a not-for-profit, charitable animal welfare organization, the Brevard Humane Society relies on our community to help us fulfill our mission of finding a loving, permanent home for the homeless animals in our care. From in-shelter support, to at-home foster care, volunteers are needed in every part of the work we do. 

Volunteers do more than simply give up their free time to lend a hand, they make a difference in the lives of the animals in our care and serve as an extension of our staff. Volunteers give us the extra man power needed to care for more animals, find more homes, and to grow our programs.  Last year, our volunteers provided more than 38,881 hours of service to the Brevard Humane Society and contributed countless more outside of our doors.  

New volunteers are requested to attend an informative session to learn more of who we are, what we do, how we do it and answer any questions you may have about how YOU can help!  Click here to learn more about our volunteer process.
