CHS Volunteer Program

Volunteer efforts play a vital role in what we are able to accomplish at the CHS. As we dedicate ourselves to the new and exciting challenges of tremendously expanded CHS programs, many more volunteers will be required. We cordially extend an invitation to join us as we work together on behalf of those so dependent on us for their well-being.

Volunteer orientations are held on the second Saturday of every month at 10:00 a.m. at the shelter!  A $15 fee will cover the cost of a Volunteer T-shirt.

Volunteer of the Month

Susan Sutton

Cherryland Humane Society’s
Volunteer of the Month

February, 2018


Susan has been a volunteer at Cherryland Humane Society since September 9, 2017 and it’s hard to believe it’s only been six months as she has made a huge impact on the operations of CHS in a very short time.

Susan’s many roles include cleaning in the mornings, reception and even running to Home Depot to pick up ceiling tiles in the middle of her reception duties! Susan is also one of the first volunteers to step up and fill in when someone else is unable to make it in.

Susan will help wherever she is needed and does it with her wonderful smile!

Her professionalism, compassion and love for animals goes above and beyond.

CHS’ animals, staff and fellow volunteers have surely benefited from Susan joining its volunteer community and we hope she stays on board for many years to come!For her many hours of dedication helping CHS fulfill its mission, we salute Susan as February’s Volunteer of the Month!

If you see this beautiful lady, please tell her thank you, congratulations and job well done!
