Get involved

Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer at Second Chance Humane Society! Second Chance relies heavily on the generosity and support of our wonderful volunteers. There are many ways to get involved, ranging from several hours weekly to a few times a year and everything in between. Apply your talents & skills toward a variety of Second Chance opportunities:

Please note that shelter volunteers must attend at least one (1) orientation at our Animal Resource Center in Ridgway before getting started walking dogs & cuddling cats. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator via email or call 970.626.2273 to learn more.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering limited orientation dates for new volunteers. If you'd like to get on a list to be notified of shelter orientation opportunities, please email: volunteer@AdoptMountainPets.org or fill out this form.


If you'd like to volunteer to:

  • assist with mobile adoption events in Telluride
  • be a foster pet parent
  • help spruce up the shelter property
  • help transport animals or pet food
  • assist with office projects
  • help with our animal wellness clinic
