Junior Volunteer Program

Mission and History

The Humane Society of Charles County has the dual mission of promoting the humane treatment of animals and of fostering a respect for all life, both animal and human.
  
The Humane Society had only 25 members and less then $100 when it began in 1978. Our one objective was to rescue dogs and cats hit by cars. Through the years, we have grown to over 1,700 families strong. Our services have greatly expanded and we are now able to shelter rehabilitate and adopt rescued animals in our modern facility on Industrial Park Dr. in St. Charles. In 1989, we expanded our dog run area from 10 to 24 runs, and in 1995, we added a larger cat area, a quarantine room with additional dog runs and cat cages, and a multi-purpose/humane education room. In March 1998, we began spaying and neutering all animals before adoption in our own spay/neuter clinic.

 
Our Services include:
  • Providing emergency veterinary care and rehabilitative care to injured or abused animals.
  • Accepting all animals brought to us and operating our own shelter and adoption center.
  • Sales of Charles County dog licenses.
  • Sponsoring low cost rabies vaccine and microchip clinics for dogs, cats, and ferrets.
  • Spaying/neutering of all pets before adoption and low cost surgeries for the public.
  • Offering human and environmental education programs to schools and other groups.
  • Sponsoring a Junior Volunteer program for students ages 14 and up, enabling them to earn required community service hours for high school graduation.
  • Offering lost/found and information/assistance service to the public.

YOUR DONATIONS MAKE THIS ALL POSSIBLE.

 What Does A Junior Volunteer Do?

 A Humane Society Volunteer can do many types of work at the shelter or at many of our events around Charles County.  Volunteers do everything from socialization of our pets to cleaning cages and washing blankets to helping with off site adoption events such as those at Petco. Our Humane Education Department also uses volunteers to help with their programs whether they be at the shelter or around the county. Most of all, volunteers are motivated to do whatever is needed to ensure that as many pet's lives are saved as possible. After all, that's the bottom line.
Everything that is done serves the goal of saving lives and providing an opportunity for the right people and families to experience the wonderful things that a pet can bring into their lives.
There is no age requirement for Junior Volunteers.  Those under 18 are required to have written permission of a parent or guardian, and those under 14 are required to have a parent or guardian with them while volunteering.
All hours are recorded, and can be used for community service requirements in school.  

What Is Required of Me To Become A Volunteer?

Junior Volunteers must have parental permission slips signed by a parent before they can begin to volunteer with us.
