The HSCI is looking for more able bodies to work in to the volunteer rotation.  This means you would be on a schedule for one day a week lending a paw to our staff to deal with the day to day goings on.  Here are a few of the things we ask of our volunteers.




  1. Throwing a pillow on the floor of the catteries, sitting down and playing with the cats and kittens.  This helps socialize our adoption candidates and makes them easier to place.  Our adult cats will love on you for hours.  It has been scientifically proven that petting a cat can
  2. lower your blood pressure, reduce anxiety and release endorphins.

  3. Bathing puppies.. needs no explanation…just plain fun!!
  4. Taking dogs on their daily walks
  5. Going along on a “rescue” mission with Ricardo
  6. General cleaning
  7. Greeting visitors

These are just a few of the many fun ways to spend half of a day.  Volunteering for the HSCI is extremely gratifying both emotionally and spiritually.  Bring the family.  We do ask that if you bring children they are always under your direct supervision.  For more information you can email us at

1.  Echar una almohada en el piso de la jaula de los gatos, sentarse y jugar con los gatitos y los gatos. Esto ayuda a los candidatos a adopción a

socializar y es más fácil encontrar donde acomodarlos. Nuestros gatos adultos le amaran por horas. Se ha comprobado científicamente que acariciar a un gato puede bajar la presión sanguínea, reducir la ansiedad y liberar endorfinas.
2.  Bañar cachorros… no necesita mayor explicación…. ¡es pura diversión!
3.  Acompañar a los perros en sus paseos diarios.
4.  Acompañar a Ricardo en una misión de “rescate”.
5.  Limpieza general.
6. Dar la bienvenida a los visitantes.
Estas son sólo algunas de las muchas formas divertidas para pasar la mitad de un día. Ser voluntario para la Sociedad Humanitaria es muy gratificante tanto emocional como espiritualmente. Traigan a la familia. Les pedimos que si traen niños, éstos siempre se encuentren bajo supervisión directa. Para mayor información, pueden enviarnos un correo a
