Due to COVID-19, most volunteer programs are not available. Right now only select volunteers are allowed in the building, and we are not doing Pawsitive Readers or Group Volunteering. New volunteers are not currently accepted.

Our Individual Volunteering Program is open to everyone over 16 years of age. Volunteer orientation attendance is mandatory to participate in this program. Individual volunteers may apply to participate in any of our volunteer roles except the Pawsitive Readers Program.

For volunteers 15 years and under, we offer our Family Volunteering Program. This program currently offers the Pawsitive Readers Program and the Bark & Meow Bene-kit Program.

We accept a limited number of volunteers looking to complete court-ordered community service hours. Volunteer orientation attendance is mandatory to participate in this program.

Due to the high volume of requests for service opportunities, we cannot commit to providing accommodation for any minimum number of service hours. If you are required to complete a minimum number of community service hours within the next 6 months, we advise you to seek additional opportunities within the community. There are many other organizations in the surrounding areas that might be able to accommodate your needs sooner.

Groups and organizations interested in volunteering with LCHS may complete a Group Volunteering application. We have many requests from groups throughout the year and a limited number of appropriate volunteer opportunities. These opportunities include various special events and fundraisers throughout the year, facilities/maintenance projects and throwing a Bark & Meow Benefit.
