The membership fee includes the specified number of volunteer dates, member benefits and project supplies. Membership fees are non-refundable.
After you become a Humane Heroes member, you must contact the Humane Educator to sign up for each volunteer date that you would like to attend. Volunteer dates are an hour and a half long and are usually held on a Friday evening or Saturday afternoon.
Do the membership packages expire?
Because the membership packages include a specific number of volunteer dates, there is no membership expiration. However, memberships will need to be renewed once a child has attended all of the allotted volunteer dates included in his or her specific membership package.
How do I sign up for a volunteer date?
To sign up for a volunteer date please email the Humane Educator at email@example.com. A week before the volunteer date they will email you to confirm that your child will be attending your scheduled date.
