If you have time to give, want to help East Bay cats and dogs looking for homes, and are interested in our volunteer program (see Volunteer Opportunities for detailed information), please attend a General Orientation.

For animal care positions, the minimum time commitment is one regular 2-hr weekly shift for six months. Shifts are scheduled during our hours of operation from 7:00am to 6:00pm. 

The minimum age requirement for volunteering with the dogs at Berkeley Humane is 16. If you plan to work only with cats, the minimum age requirement is 10. Minors aged 10-15 work under the supervision of a parent or guardian as a team. If you are seeking opportunities to fulfill a school community service requirement, we will assist you with coordinating a fund or donation drive at your school or in your community.  

Minimum commitments for non-animal care opportunities vary and can often be flexible.

Berkeley Humane is committed to providing each volunteer and foster parent with a rewarding and productive experience. We look forward to meeting you!
