Volunteer As A Pack!
We rely on animal lovers, like you, to help us in our mission to rescue, heal, adopt and advocate for sick, injured and abused animals!
Thank you for considering the Arizona Humane Society for your group volunteer experience! We are thrilled to offer a variety of experiences for animal-loving groups as small as four and as large as 100.
Our donation-based experiences help cover the resources needed to host groups, as well as providing funding for the sick, injured and abused pets in our care. Since we are not government funded and rely on donations from our community, these donations from groups really help us with our lifesaving work. We understand that not all groups have funds to contribute and simply want to contribute their time, which is equally as amazing! If this is the case for you, please consider our Fur-ree Experiences: Thrifting to Save Lives.
Our group experiences below are for those 18 years and older. If looking for opportunities for those younger than 18, please visit our Youth Volunteering page.
Team-building volunteerism that makes a big impact for homeless pets in need! AHS is not government funded so we rely on donations from our community, which greatly help us with our lifesaving work.

Canine Play Day: Kennel time can get pretty boring for our furry friends. Enrichment is the key to keeping our dogs healthy and happy until they find their new homes! In addition to walking dogs, your group will make special treats, stuff KONGs, craft toys or assemble dog beds. (Sept – May)
Doggy Day Spa: Treat our adoptable pooches to a spa day! Your group will bathe, groom and primp our homeless dogs, which will lift their spirits, and help them become more adoptable! (Sept – May)
Furry Friends Day: Spend your day with both your cuddly kitties and adorable pups. You will help keep the dog tails wagging and the kitties purring as you make toys and yummy treats for our adoptable friends. Enjoy seeing their happy faces when you hand out the goodies you’ve made. (Sept – May)
Holiday Fur-Real Experiences: (November – December)
Fall Doggy Trot (10-15 people)

Santa Paws Furry Friends Day (5-10 people)
Our pets are on the nice list and all they want this holiday season is for more visits and time out of the kennel with groups like yours! Your holiday group team-builder will include a day of cuddling homeless kittens, walking adoptable dogs, making cozy kitty blankets, preparing treats and delivering special holiday goodies for our pets. End your team builder with a photo op with an adoptable dog to post on social medial and promote the pet and help them find a forever home.

Small group team building activities that make a BIG impact for homeless pets in need! These experiences include a private group experience at one of our AHS locations, team pictures and interactions with some furry friends.
PetSmart Scottsdale Experience: Last year more than 2,500 pets were adopted from our PetSmart locations. This huge accomplishment is only achievable with help from groups just like yours. We will be cleaning our pets’ kennels, providing daily enrichment activities and of course walking and cuddling our furry friends. (Up to 2 volunteers. March – November)
Kitten Kuddles: Who doesn’t love cuddling kittens? March through November is kitten season in Arizona, which means we get an abundance of young kitty cats that need daily enrichment, out of kennel socialization, and food and litter bagged as they head off to their foster hero’s home. (Up to 5 volunteers. April – October)
Enrichment Experience: AHS is dedicated to providing an enriching stay for shelter pets until they find their new home. Your group will roam our kennels and provide all of our furry friends with in-kennel enrichment and socialization such as delivering special treats, reading books and so much more! (Up to 5 volunteers. Available Year-Round)
