Adult Summer Program


Volunteers are very important people at IndyHumane. As a non-profit organization, we rely on the assistance of caring, animal-loving individuals in all of our programs. The Adult Summer Volunteer Program is ideal for students who are home for the summer or individuals who have time to donate during the months of June, July, and August.

  • You must be at least 18 years of age by June 1st.
  • Minimum commitment of 8 hours/month and must commit to a weekly or bi-weekly schedule. Example: Every Wednesday from 5-7pm
  • This program only qualifies you to volunteer during the months of June, July, and August. If you are able to volunteer year round, you need to join our Shelter Volunteer Program.
  • There is a Volunteer Fee of $15 (helps cover the costs of Volunteer Shirts and Database) due at Basic Training.
  • Must complete training in order.
  • If you are a Volunteer with a Special Need that prevents you from volunteering independently, you must have an adult partner train and volunteer alongside you.

How to Join our Adult Summer Volunteer Program:

  • Request an application by May 31st.
  • You will be emailed IndyHumane Facts and Volunteer Program Information along with an application. Applications will be accepted until May 31st.
  • Complete training

Steps of Training:

  • Basic Training: Receive a tour of IndyHumane and detailed information about the workings of our shelter, disease prevention, and customer service.
  • Complete an Intro to Shelter Canines Course (for Canine Volunteers) or an Intro to Shelter Felines Course (for Feline Volunteers): Learn the proper way to interact with shelter dogs/cats, learn basic handling techniques, and learn how to deal with problem situations.
  • Complete a Shadow Day: You will spend a shift with an experienced Volunteer or Staff Member in the area you are interested in donating time. This will help us determine if you are volunteering in the area best suited for you and our needs can be met.

If you have any questions, please contact the Director of Volunteer Services.
