The Above the Notch Humane Society’s mission is to provide protection and care for unwanted, abused and stray dogs as well as educate the public in proper animal care and welfare, but we cannot do it alone. We need the help of volunteers; good people like you who are willing to volunteer their time and energy to help innocent dogs in need.
A volunteer is one who acts and undertakes a task or service of their own free will, without monetary or financial compensation. Volunteers are extremely important to our cause. There are many things that need to be accomplished and we need your help. It is with this in mind that we are reaching out for your assistance.
During this Holiday Season of giving and thanks, have you asked yourself, “what can I do that can and will make a difference? The answer: volunteer for a wonderful cause! It will give you the ability to do new and different things as well as get new and meaningful life experiences. It will also allow you to take pride in the accomplishment that comes from making a difference.

Volunteers are not only needed to help care for the dogs in our shelter, but for many different aspects of our mission. In order to raise funds and continue into the future, we will need to sponsor and participate in fundraisers which may include: an open mike night /karaoke, craft sales, bake sales and car washes to name just a few. These fundraising events take a great deal of time and planning and would not be successful without the assistance of volunteers. Deciding on the actual fundraising events, as well as coordinating all of the details it takes to organize and set them up, takes a tremendous amount of time and effort, but with your help the process will be much less arduous and far more fun.

We hold monthly volunteer meetings that allow us to expand our capabilities by brainstorming different ideas for future fundraising events. The time you volunteer is very important to us, but your feedback and your ideas are as important as the time you are willing to give. We are offering you a chance to become part of something critically important in our community and to know that you are making a difference, one day at a time. As a volunteer, you become part of the whole.
