Do you often think to yourself "Oh, I wish I could take them all home, but can’t!” 

What you can do, is visit them all regularly and help us find them a home!  Volunteering is an excellent alternative to adoption, and with most of the same benefits of adoption, without taking the animal home. We don’t expect everyone to adopt, but we really appreciate your help in finding them homes!

One of the best things about volunteering with Wood County Humane Society is that just about everyone can do something to encourage shelter pet adoption and humane animal care, whether that is in the shelter or out of the shelter. View our volunteer opportunities here!
