Volunteering at HSYC

There are volunteer opportunities available for all ages, physical conditions, and interests. Volunteers can do anything from socializing the animals to training them, walking the dogs, cleaning & sanitizing the pet areas, grooming, washing & folding laundry, helping with fund raising events, working the front desk, lawn & gardening, to just about anything you can imagine!

All volunteers are required to attend our 1-hour orientation session before actively volunteering. Some activities will require training. The orientation sessions are held at 5:30 pm on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at our shelter located at 1216 Route 14A in Penn Yan, New York.

There are many ways to sign up for an orientation session:

· Print the Volunteer Application Form and drop it off at the front desk or put it in the drop box in our front vestibule!

· Stop in to the shelter during business hours to pick up an application form and sign up at the Front Desk.

· Call the shelter at 315-536-6094 and ask to sign up.

Space is limited for the Orientation sessions, so if you drop off the form after hours, you will be contacted to confirm which session you can attend.
