The Las Vegas Valley Humane Society (LVVHS) is an animal rescue and advocacy organization composed of people from every walk of life. Our most common interest is helping save lives and making things better for abandoned, abused, neglected and lost companion animals in Southern Nevada. We achieve these goals through many different volunteer efforts. Some are fairly time-consuming and some are occasional and project-specific. If you are an animal lover and want to learn more about making things better for our 4-legged friends, please contact us - we need you and promise your contributions will be appreciated as well as very rewarding!
We encourage and seek the participation of volunteers who support our goals: the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, eliminating overpopulation of companion animals and the extension of humane education. If you support these goals and are interested in becoming a volunteer with our organization, please complete the online application below or print and mail application here.
Please note that the first step to becoming a volunteer is to fill out an online volunteer application. This applies for an individual or a group.
