Corporate Volunteer Experience

*Due to Covid-19, Corporate Volunteer Experiences are not being held at the shelter.*

As corporate volunteers, you and your colleagues will learn about our mission and help save lives through hands-on animal experiences! During your 1.5-2 hours at our main shelter, your team will socialize with our adoptable animals, meet our education animals, help with essential tasks like treat preparation, and learn how you can continue to make a difference in the lives of the pets and people that rely on DCHS.

For a $250 donation, your team (up to 10 people) will:

  • Tour our main shelter and learn about DCHS
  • Assist with mission-critical tasks, such as
    • Fill Kongs for our dogs
    • Make cat toys
    • Collect wildlife enrichment
    • ...and more!
  • Socialize with animals
  • Receive a social media post tagging your business's support

Corporate volunteer experiences are 1.5-2 hours long, Monday-Friday for a maximum of 10 people per session. To schedule your experience, or if you have any questions, please contact Sarah Linn.

Community Volunteer Opportunities

Each year events like Brat Fest, Run Mad Town, Madison Marathon and Taste of Madison need volunteer help. The event holder will compensate DCHS for your time if you volunteer at their event and identify Dane County Humane Society as the charity you are sponsoring. Anyone can do this, sign up is easy and it’s a fun way to help animals at DCHS. You do not need to be a DCHS volunteer. You can help individually or have your friends, family or co-workers join you.
