HSNEI depends on our volunteers to help socialize and enrich the lives of the cats and dogs in our care. Please click the Volunteer Application & Login Button to the right to join our HSNEI team.

Children, age 9 - 13 are welcome to volunteer when accompanied by an approved 18+ year old volunteer. Volunteers 14+ years old may volunteer without accompaniment.


Volunteer activities include animal enrichment--like walking and exercising dogs and socializing and playing with cats--as well as other activities like organizing supplies and donations, helping at HSNEI community events, and assisting with data entry.

We value our animals, volunteers, and staff members; we want everyone to have a healthy, safe, and rewarding experience at the HSNEI Shelter/Love & Friendship Adoption Center. The health, safety, and comfort of our animals, volunteers, and staff members is a top priority at HSNEI!

We encourage volunteers to ask questions and to have fun. We will do our best to ensure your volunteer experiences meet your expectations.
