National Volunteer Week

Sunday, April 15 marks the start of National Volunteer Week, an annual celebration to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism in the US and Canada! This week, from now until Saturday, April 21, we will spotlight volunteers from a variety of different positions. Many of them have been with us for years… some for over TWO decades!

Check back throughout the week to see our daily spotlights.

Did you know that the Humane Society of Broward County has over 500 volunteers that help our organization annually? It’s true! We have hundreds of volunteers, ages 14-90, who give their time to support the animals at the HSBC every year.

Thanks to this large group of supporters, we are able to operate as effectively as we do, and the work they do for us is truly invaluable. We want to extend our sincerest appreciation and thanks to this generous group of supporters throughout the next several days.

About the HSBC’s Volunteer Program

We offer 22 different volunteer positions, with a variety of shifts ranging from 2-4 hours. There are lots of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, so if you’re interested in volunteering, we’ll find a position that is a good fit for you!
