Running a shelter like the Marion Area Humane Society, and caring for the dogs and cats takes a lot of work. Our shelter depends on volunteers like you to help us keep our shelter running smoothly. There are many ways to volunteer at our shelter. Volunteering ranges from cuddling cats and walking dogs, to cleaning cages, or being an advocate for our shelter by taking a dog to one of our public events. All contribute to our goal of providing homes for homeless dogs and cats. When you walk through our shelter doors and give of your time, you will make a difference in a dog or cat’s life and it will make a difference in yours.
