In order to provide the best possible care for our animals, volunteers are asked to commit to volunteering for one 2-hour shift per week for a minimum of 3 or 6 months. Volunteers between the ages of 12-15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to volunteer on-site but can find lots of fun ways to help our animals by visiting our Cub's Corner page.
To get started as a Greenhill volunteer, please complete our online volunteer application by clicking here. Once we have received your application, we will contact you to schedule you for an upcoming New Volunteer Meeting & Orientation Session (please check your e-mail for more information on signing up for a session). Please complete a separate application for all individuals who will be volunteering. (If you would like to become a foster parent, please complete the online foster care application on the foster care page).

Greenhill's Volunteer and Foster Newsletter
Katie Lively & Kim Worley
Each inspired by their parents, Katie Lively and Kim Worley have been fantastic volunteers in our Volunteer Department. Katie, whose parents fostered kittens, has been volunteering with us since 2013 and has dedicated over 230 hours to our shelter; Kim, whose father is a dedicated kennel care assistant, joined the team last year and has volunteered over 90 hours of time to ensuring that our Greenhill office functions smoothly.
Katie joined our volunteer team because of her passion for animals. Although she enjoyed dog walking, Katie found her stride as a volunteer/foster care office assistant. “I like the feeling of being able to ease someone else's burden so that they can concentrate on other aspects of their job,” she says.
Katie graduated as salutatorian this year from Thurston High School, and she will be continuing her education at Willamette University in Salem. Not only does she volunteer with us here at Greenhill, but she was also active in her high school, volunteering for the National Honor Society and acting as editor-in-chief for her high school newspaper. When she’s not volunteering or writing, Katie can be found reading a good book or competing in swim competitions. We’re definitely going to miss Katie as she moves forward with her life goals. “I have learned that one does not have to be in a position that works directly with the animals in order to help the animals. Every department of the shelter contributes in a unique and important way.”
Thanks so much for your passion and dedication, Katie and Kim!
