Welcome to Our Volunteer Program!

CAHS VolunteerVolunteering at the Conway Area Humane Society is fun and it improves the lives of the animals in our care. If you have some time to give and you want to help animals – we have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! CAHS is committed to providing each volunteer with a rewarding and productive experience. Thank you for thinking about joining our volunteer team.

There are a wide range of volunteer positions ranging from direct animal care to administration to events and fundraising. All volunteers should expect to work with CAHS staff, other volunteers and members of the public as well as animals. We work carefully to match your skills and interests with the needs of the shelter.
