Humane Society of Marion County looking for volunteers

The Humane Society of Marion County (HSMC), a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the care and protection of the county’s animals, is currently seeking volunteers who are 14 years of age or older.

According to HSMC, volunteers lend a hand throughout the organization by walking dogs, socializing with animals, cleaning laundry and dishes, operating the thrift store, and helping out during special events, among other responsibilities.

To be eligible, all volunteers must be at least 14 years of age. Any volunteers who are 14 or 15 years old must be accompanied by another volunteer who is over the age of 21.

All volunteers who are 16 years of age or older may volunteer on their own.

HSMC highlights that the volunteer program provides an opportunity for students to earn community service hours for scholarships and reference letters to college.

Our volunteers are integral to the success of our organization,” states the Humane Society of Marion County on its website. “Without volunteers, we would be unable to save as many animals as we do.”

For more information on volunteer opportunities, visit the Humane Society of Marion County’s volunteer webpage or call 352-873-7387.

The Humane Society of Marion County is located at 701 NW 14th Road in Ocala.
