Volunteer at Altoona PA Humane Society

You Can Make a Difference

Volunteers are a vital part of the CPHS team. Without them, we would not be able to perform many of the essential functions at our shelter. CPHS is always looking for eager volunteers to assist with the shelter animals and everyday responsibilities of shelter life.

Whether you are interested in walking dogs, helping at events, or socializing cats, there is a place for you at CPHS. The animals are waiting for you…get started today!

Age Requirements

For the safety of our animals and volunteers, we do have age requirements for our volunteers.  Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult and will have limited interaction with the shelter pets.

We accept students of all ages performing community service hours for school, faith based organizations, extra-curricular activities, or probation.  A parent or guardian must accompany the student for community service.
