I understand that I am not an employee of South Suburban Humane Society, its agents or Departments. I understand further that I will not receive any compensation and am not eligible for any coverage under the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. No promises or contract exists between South Suburban Humane Society and the undersigned. I am serving as a Volunteer and understand that no obligations exist on the part of South Suburban Humane Society to compensate me in any way. This understanding applies to all volunteer activities that I may engage in with South Suburban Humane Society for the duration of the term of my volunteer work agreement.

By clicking "Submit", I acknowledge and agree to the terms of this agreement.

All volunteers must be at least 12 years of age. If you are under 12 but still want to help, contact our Volunteer Coordinator for fundraising and donation drive ideas.

All volunteers are required to make a 6 month, 8 hour per month commitment to volunteer at the shelter. If you are looking for a service project that only requires a few hours, contact our Volunteer Coordinator for ideas on how you can organize a fundraiser or donation drive.

Each volunteer must pay the required fee before they enter the program. This one-time administrative fee helps us cover the cost of the volunteer program, and includes a volunteer t-shirt and name badge.
