Outreach & Education
DCHS's Humane Education programs provide one-of-a-kind experiences that teach the public not only about the shelter but also how they can make our community a better place for both people and animals. If you are interested in helping educate community members of all ages, consider volunteering in one of the following positions.
As of August 8, 2021 we have opened recruitment for new volunteers to the majority of our volunteer positions.
