Animals helped this year


Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with the Athens Area Humane Society. We appreciate you offering one of the most valuable things you can, your time. 

We love our volunteers and have several long term volunteers, which only allows limited volunteer opportunities at this time, and you must be 18 years or older to be approved as a volunteer.

Do you want to be the mascot, CHLOE?

Do you want to help at special events?

Do you want to help answer phones?

Do you want to help at our monthly pet care clinics? We can always use more help here.

    How to Begin Volunteering

    The Athens Area Humane Society is a no-kill organization dedicated to lowering area euthanasia rates through adoption, spay/neuter and pet retention programs. We could not do this work without the support of volunteers.

      Community Service

      If you have been court mandated to complete service hours, you must follow the community service program requirements below. If you sign up as a regular volunteer, your hours will not count toward court-ordered community service.

      All community service is done at 1781 Mars Hill Road in Watkinsville.

      If you are required to complete community service hours, you must call our shelter at 706-705-2247 for more information. You can also stop by the shelter during business hours for more information on completing court ordered community service with us. Clarke County offenses must go through the probation officer. We must have your paperwork with the offense listed before we can allow anyone to do Community Service.
