Volunteers are at the heart of making the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) compassionate and caring. Their efforts and dedication help us accomplish our important mission: A compassionate society where animals are cared for and valued. As a private, non-profit organization, we rely heavily on the assistance of our caring, dedicated and hard-working volunteers.

HSPPR only asks a six-month commitment from its volunteers, but many of our devoted volunteers have been a part of the HSPPR for several years. Our volunteers enjoy helping animals, people and their community.

Volunteers work side-by-side with shelter staff, and provide needed manpower for those programs that improve the quality of life for shelter animals. They allow us to achieve excellence in all that we do for the animals, making the community a better place for both people and pets. Our volunteers’ commitment to us, in turn, enables us to fulfill the commitment we have made to the animals and people that we serve.
