You + Berkeley Humane = Lives Saved!

Thank you for your interest in joining the Berkeley Humane family! Volunteers make it possible for Berkeley Humane to accomplish its life-saving mission and give shelter animals a second chance at a full, happy life.



Whether walking dogs, cuddling cats, taking photos, wrangling the database, or chairing events — dedicated volunteers are integrated into every aspect of our daily operations.



Interested in hands-on experience? Berkeley Humane is the organization for you! We offer various internship opportunities where you'll learn plenty, have tons of fun, and best of all, help save countless animals.



Providing temporary housing and care will allow Berkeley Humane to expand our capacity for animals beyond our walls, which means more lives saved! No experience necessary.

If you are seeking opportunities to fulfill a school or community project, please consider hosting a donation drive. Your collection of donations or essential items will help Berkeley Humane save more lives! See a list of what items our animals need.
