Volunteers make all the difference!

Volunteers are critical to the work we do. Your willingness to get involved brings new energy and expertise to our organization and helps the public better understand how YHS can make a difference to the lives of animals and the people of Yavapai County.

An orientation fee of $15 per person will be collected at your orientation meeting. This small charge covers the cost of your name tag, t-shirt, printing (volunteer handbook, articles about animal welfare), and other program expenses. If this presents a hardship, simply let us know on your application.

If you have questions please call our Community Outreach Manager at (928) 445-2666 ext. 16 or email
