Community Involvement

Day of Service

This opportunity is perfect for small groups that would like to tour our facility, learn about what we do, and help with daily cleaning and animal care. Service days are offered weekday mornings and group size is limited to 6 individuals (age 18+). To schedule your day of service, please submit a Community Involvement Request Form and we will be in touch. Due to space constraints we encourage large groups to complete an off-site service project. **Please note that we cannot accommodate groups or new volunteers while we remain closed to walk-in visitors. Check back for updates!**

Service Projects

Completing an off-site service project is a great way for individuals or groups of all ages to make an impact on their own schedule, in their own space. Projects might include organizing a fundraising event, holding a donation drive, or gathering your friends for a crafting party. 


Donation drives and fundraising events are an especially helpful way to collect animal care supplies or monetary donations for the shelter. You could gather items from our wish list, have a coin war, or plan a party. Event ideas are endless, get creative! If you'd like some ideas for your crafting party, check out these DIY items the animals love.


Host an Event Benefiting HATS

Planning a fundraising or community outreach event is a fantastic way to help the animals and raise awareness. If the Humane Animal Treatment Society will be the beneficiary of your event, please submit an Event Proposal Form so we can contact you to discuss your plans and ensure you are on track for a successful and mutually-beneficial event. 

Request Our Attendance at an Event 

If you would like a HATS representative to attend your community event with informational materials, please submit a Community Involvement Request Form. Be sure to reach out as soon as you begin planning so we can determine our availability. 

Humane Education Presentations

Educating children on responsible pet ownership is an essential part of our mission to empower our community to support the compassionate treatment of all animals. HATS staff and volunteers are available to present on a variety of topics tailored to your age group and personal interest. 

To request a presentation, please submit a Community Involvement Request Form. We will then be in touch to discuss your presentation options and topics of interest. 

School Projects

School projects offer an opportunity to mutually benefit students as well as the Humane Animal Treatment Society.

If you have a project, assignment, internship or fieldwork hours you would like to complete with us, please submit the Community Involvement Request Form and we will be in touch.
