With nearly 1,500 lost and homeless animals coming through our doors each year, volunteers are essential in helping LHS carry out its mission. To fundraise for the animals and demonstrate our sincere appreciation to the community for their support, many volunteers take advantage of volunteering from home.
Here is a list of several help from home volunteer opportunities. Of course, we love to receive feedback! If there is something you are interested in helping with that isn’t on this list, please feel free to contact us and share your ideas.
|Recycle Aluminum Cans|
Collect your aluminum cans and turn them into cash for LHS! Waste Management has kindly donated a large aluminum receptacle at LHS, so save up those cans and drop them off at your convenience. Even better, Muchin’s has generously agreed to pay LHS 10 cents more than the current rate for aluminum recycling!
|Milk for Moola & Donuts to Dough|
Find yourself filling up often at Kwik Trip? While you’re there, pick up some Star’s Nature’s Touch™ and Kwik Quencher™ products. And maybe grab some Glazers donuts as well. For every cap or bag top collected, LHS earns five cents; and for every dozen or half-dozen donuts, ten cents goes to help animals in need. So collect your caps, bag tops and ovals and drop them off at the shelter!
A fundraising event is only as successful as the work before, during and after the event. Join one of our volunteer groups for our largest fundraising events, such as the Walk for Kindness, Putting for Pets or annual Rummage Sale. There are hours of behind-the-scenes work required to put these events together, such as creating gift baskets for raffles, calling upon local businesses for donations/sponsorships and more!
|Adoption Folder Assembly|
Are you extremely organized with an eye for detail? Help us set up our new adoptive families for success by assembling our adoption folders that contain helpful information related to animal health and resources.
|Marketing & Public Relations|
Do you have writing experience? Do you enjoy networking and creating partnerships? There are several marketing and public relations opportunities, including writing newsletter articles and press releases, managing corporate sponsorship information, helping publicize fundraising events and more. Put those skills to use for a good cause today!
|Community Fundraising Errands|
Do you have a few hours each month to run errands for LHS? We can always use help managing our donation banks and other fundraising stations throughout the community. Our local business generously donate the space and our volunteers help make sure we preform timely collection and maintenance.
