The South Suburban Humane Society Court-Ordered Community Service Program provides opportunities for individuals who are over the age of 18 that have been court ordered to perform community service of 20 or more hours. Court-ordered community service volunteers will not work directly with the animals, but may assist with other janitorial tasks and projects as available.
These opportunities are available at our shelter location and resale shop. Opportunities for these positions are Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Please visit the shelter and ask to speak to our Volunteer Coordinator for further information. There is a $10 application fee for those offenders without a probation officer.
