Donate to Hawaii Island Humane Society


**July 16, 2020** Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering with HIHS! Volunteers are an incredibly important part of our organization and we're excited to welcome you aboard. We aren’t quite ready to open our doors back up to the public yet and therefore, are unable to accept new volunteers.

In the mean time, when you learn more about our volunteer program here:

How to Apply

An orientation and signed waiver are required before you may begin volunteering. In orientation you will learn about our policies, procedures and get a tour of the shelter. After orientation you are free to volunteer any day and time that our shelter is open. Contact our Volunteer department via email at to learn more!This email address is being protected from spambots.

Dogs are more likely to be adopted after having a run in the yard and a nice bath. Our feline friends need human interaction and someone to cuddle with!
