Volunteer with EBHS
Volunteers play an important role at Elmbrook Humane Society (EBHS) as they allow us to offer high-quality care to our animals while helping to contain costs all while ensuring the animals in our care remain happy and healthy while they wait for their forever homes. Volunteers can be found in all aspects of our organization, from those who help with special events to those who work directly with the adoptable animals and assist staff in ensuring they all have clean beds to lay their heads on at night.
