Please consider giving some of your time to help save homeless animals. The animals in our care depend on volunteers to visit with them for training and socialization. Your time helps them be more comfortable while waiting for permanent homes, and helps them better adapt to homes once a new family finds them.
We Need Your Help! Foster homes save lives! You are one of the most valuable assets a shelter can have. We are always in desperate need of foster homes. You can help us save lives by opening your loving home and hearts to an animal in a shelter.
We offer a dog walking orientation for all volunteers Sundays at 12 p.m. Weather permitting! Learn from our volunteer trainers how we work with our dogs on good manners!

HSIMC depends largely on many dedicated volunteers to keep the shelter running! Volunteers help with essential daily activities and chores. Long term volunteers help conduct our dog walking orientation classes! We have a few dedicated staff onsite daily to work with the animals in our care and direct the shelter. Everything else, from fundraising, to outreach, maintenance and grounds keeping, is done by generous volunteers. Please consider volunteering today!
Cats love the attention and interaction they receive and give to our wonderful volunteers! Many enjoy grooming and brushing. Kittens and cats need socialization and extra snuggles to help them transition from living in a shelter or on the streets to being a family pet.
Every adoptable dog benefits immensely from our training program. They begin to learn good behavior before going to permanent homes! They also need social interaction to stay healthy and happy!
Fostering means you get to help animals in need, all in the comfort of your own home. You don't have to have fostering experience, we give you information, guidance and support! The length of time is up to you. Whether you can care for bottle babies, kittens, one dog or many, we would love to have you as a foster!
