Volunteer Application
Key notes to consider before applying:
  • Anyone under the age of 18 must volunteer with a parent or guardian at all times
  • Please fill out an application for each family member interested in volunteering
  • All adult volunteers will have a background check performed before they're eligible to volunteer with Happily Ever After
  • All new volunteers are required to attend orientation and training
Volunteer Opportunities:

We're excited to have you share your hearts and talents with the animals. We ask that you plan to volunteer a minimum of 6 hours/month. For animal care specifically, here are a few shift styles you might consider:
  • Weekdays: requires an every week commitment (on the same day of the week). Shifts are approximately 3 hours.
  • Weekends: requires a minimum commitment of 1 shift per month. Shifts are approximately 6 hours. Some function specific assignments can be split into 3 hour shifts.
  • Flexible: requires a minimum commitment of 6 hours per month. Shift lengths and days will vary.
Volunteer Orientation:
  • After you submit your application, the next step is orientation. You will receive an immediate email when your application has been received. This will include an orientatioin signup link. These sessions are offered on a limited basis. We encourage you to signup just as soon as you can.
We appreciate your interest in joining the HEA family!
Since our founding in 2006, we have seen great progress in the companion animal welfare world. Needless killing in shelters continues to decline. Organizations across the country are moving toward a no-kill measure. The agreed upon no-kill measure has been defined as a 90% live release rate. Our view is that 90% isn't enough. We are determined to see the day when the remaining 10% receive continued care and love too.

Innovative solutions are produced when killing is removed from the equation.
