Longmont Humane Society Teen Volunteer Program
Our Teen Volunteer Program is designed for 13-18 year olds (18 & still in high school). Currently, teens account for 35% of the work done by volunteers with the animals in our shelter. Volunteer opportunities for teens 13-18 years of age include working in out Dog TLC, Feline Friends, Small Paws and Junior Animal Care Assistant programs.

Opportunities for Younger Children (Ages 8-12)
We know there are many children in this age group who would love to work with the animals; unfortunately, we do not have the supervision to offer this as independent volunteer work. May we suggest, however, that an adult, over the age of 18, work as the primary volunteer and the child may accompany the adult during their volunteer time. Please refer to our Adult Volunteer section for more information.
For more information please contact our TLC Volunteer Coordinator at 303.772.1232 x278 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
