We want you!

You don’t have to be an animal expert to help out at the Columbus Lowndes Humane Society. You just need to have the time and desire to lend a helping hand. And it doesn’t have to be a lot of time, either. In fact, whatever you do for a living, you’re bound to have skills and talents that we can use. Below are some volunteer opportunities. However, we're always open for ideas if you've got a special skill or gift that you would like to share with our cause. Just let us know.

PetSmart Adoption Events

When: 2nd Saturday of each month
Where: PetSmart, 1486 Old Aberdeen Road, Columbus, MS
Time: 10am - 2pm (There are two volunteer shifts – 1st: 10am til noon; 2nd: Noon til 2pm)
What's Involved: We set up a tent in front of the store and bring a variety of adoptable dogs and puppies*. We also have cats and kittens located inside the store that stay there 24/7. The general public is invited and all the animals present are adoptable right on the spot. Your job would be: to help set up/take down the tent and cages/animals (depending on which shift you are signed up for): walk the animals during the event; answer any questions a potential adopter might have about each animal. Aside from that, you're welcome to get all the tail waggin' and kisses you can stand!

* We also have a time slot before the adoption event for those that would be willing to meet at the shelter and help load the animals into the truck for transport.
