Virtual Volunteer Program

We welcome Virtual Volunteers!

Volunteer opportunities that strengthen college applications and offer required community service hours have been severely limited due to COVID! Partner with your pet to volunteer valuable hours and raise money for a great cause – The Humane Society of Westchester!

In keeping with Covid restrictions, we are now launching our VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER PROGRAM!

This will enable volunteers of all ages, all walks of life, and all areas of the country to volunteer time to help us help our animals. While we are unable to host volunteers in person at the shelter, you can still HELP by collecting monetary and in-kind donations.

It's Easy!

Step 1

Pick your event. Whether it's our DogWalk Challenge or a Supplies Drive, there is an opportunity for everyone to make an impact.

Pledge Drives: There is a $20 minimum pledge. You will automatically earn 2 hours of community service time plus an additional one hour for every sponsor you obtain, up to 20 hours maximum.

Sales/Supplies Drives: You will earn 5 hours of community service for every day of your sale or Supplies Drive!

Step 2

Go for it! If you're having a sale, hold your sale. If you're collecting pledges print out the Pledge Form and talk it up.

Step 3

Let us know how you did. Complete our Virtual Volunteer form.

If you've raised money you'll be redirected to PayPal. We will then email you with your hours.

If you've collected supplies, you can drop those off and we'll have your confirmation ready to go.
