Learn about volunteer opportunities with Washington County Animal Services and at the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter.

Volunteer Ambassador Program

Volunteer Ambassadors are specially trained volunteers who have completed our Animal Services Academy, which prepares them to help answer animal welfare questions within their own communities. Volunteer Ambassadors may share information with neighbors and friends informally (either online or in person) or represent Washington County Animal Services and the Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter at community events.

This opportunity is open to those living in Washington County who are at least 16 years old.

We don’t have any onsite shelter or foster volunteer opportunities at this time. We encourage you to check with local rescue organizations if you want to volunteer directly with animals.
