We have officially launched our new volunteer program! We are so excited to have some new faces on site and are looking forward to working with you! As a volunteer, you become part of our lifesaving team and you are donating one of the most valuable commodities, your time.
You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the volunteer program. If you are under the age of 18, don't despair, we have a Youth Program coming later this year! Stay tuned, we will keep you posted as we develop our Youth Program!
We encourage our past volunteers to also sign up with our new program and participate in a refresher orientation. A lot has changed this year and we would love to welcome you all back and show you what is new here at HSIMC!
Please complete an application by clicking the SIGN UP button above or the Volunteer button below . Once you have submitted your application, please come to the next available orientation. We are currently offering orientation twice a month, the first Thursday and last Sunday of each month at 11:00am, orientation will occur onsite at 9700 Uva Drive, Redwood Valley, CA 95470.

Volunteer opportunities include: office work, cleaning, grounds maintenance, construction, animal socialization, grooming, dog walking, fostering, and transportation for veterinary appointments.
The animals in our care depend on volunteers, time spent with them improves their lives while they wait for their forever home.
Please consider giving some of your time to help the animals at HSIMC and ensure we can continue on our mission to save as many lives as possible.
