Volunteering
The following opportunities will let you experience the many ways you can make a difference in the lives of the animals at the WRHS.  If you can help with any task below, we would greatly appreciate the donation of your time.  It helps increase the socialization of the animals with more people, and it saves the shelter money!
Volunteering will be on a scheduled basis so every volunteer can be utilized effectively.

Fostering
We always need fosters for our animals!  There are some animals that come into the shelter who need a quieter environment or extra work to become adoptable whether it be behavior or medical.  This is where a foster family comes in.  

When you don't want the lifetime commitment of adopting a pet, but you want to make a difference in an animal's life, fostering is the right option for you.  Below is our foster form that you can fill out and return to us so we know what types of animals you are interested in helping.

We will contact you as soon as an animal in need of your help comes along.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us through our guestbook or at whiteriverhumanesociety@gmail.com.

Recyclables
The WRHS collects aluminum all year.  You may drop your cans off at the shelter (located on 3511 Pumphouse Road).  The WRHS will then haul them to the recycling depot.  Thank you in advance for helping the animals and the environment.
