Registering for a mandatory volunteer training is the first step to becoming a volunteer with the Atlanta Humane Society. During this 2.5-hour session, you will learn about the history of the Atlanta Humane Society, our mission, and receive detailed information about the various volunteer opportunities available at the shelter.
You will also receive detailed information about handling animals and the general procedures and policies of the AHS. We ask that you be willing to make a mimimum 6 month commitment to volunteering.
While you do not need to purchase a ticket in advance for volunteer training, we do require a $25 donation at the time of training to cover the costs of volunteer supplies (t-shirt, apron, leash).
