We are currently reviewing and updating our Volunteer Program policies and protocols in anticipation of opening the program to new shelter volunteers in the emerging post-pandemic environment. Masking and/or proof of vaccination will be in effect. 

Please check back for updates!

Foster Care Providers

We are currently looking for folks willing to become Foster Care providers for our animals. Foster Care providers will play a key role in helping homeless animals during COVID19 by helping us keep the population of animals in the shelter down so that we can take in animals in need as necessary.

If you would like to help at this time, please click here to download our foster care application.  If you have any questions about the program, please email to volunteer@homewardboundanimals.org .


Transport Drivers

We are in need of volunteers willing to use their personal vehicles to drive shelter animals to their spay/neuter and other medical appointments.  Transport drivers are an important part of our team and if you are interested in this flexible volunteer job, please fill out this application and email it to volunteer@homewardboundanimals.org or you may mail it to 236 Boardman Street, Middlebury VT 05753.  ATTN:  Volunteer Coordinator.
