New volunteers are started in one of four Animal Welfare Assignments: Canine Welfare Assistant, Feline Welfare Assistant, Critter Care Assistant, and Laundry. These four roles have new volunteers paired up with a staff member to help provide basic care for the animals of Nebraska Humane Society. After 8 weeks in one of these beginner roles, volunteers will have the option to advance to a volunteer role of their choosing, such as Canine Companion, Kitten Feeder, or Surgery Assistant to name a few. You can indicate what your beginner and advanced volunteer role preferences are below, or click on the assignment to learn more.
