About Volunteering 


Much of what we do at St. Hubert’s to save animals lives and give them a second chance depends on the help of volunteers. Volunteering is fun and rewarding and it’s also a great way to help homeless animals. Just a few hours every week can make a big difference.


Volunteer Positions: 

Buddy's Boutique

Retail help is needed in the gift shop located at our Madison Campus.  Volunteers help customers find the perfect toy, gift, or supplies during adoption hours.

Dog Walker

Assist in exercising the dogs throughout the day in any of our shelter locations. Must be 18 years of age or older.

Feline Friend

Feline Friends spend time socializing the shelter cats and getting to know their purr-sonalities. Must be 18 years of age or older. 

Helping Hand

Help us meet the needs of daily operations in one of our shelter locations.  Assisting with laundry, dishes, creating enrichment treats, and sorting donations is a great way to give back!  

Kennel Attendant  

Assist with the morning cleanings within the cattery or dog runs.  Shifts are available every day from 8:30 to 11:30 AM.  This rewarding position is an essential part of caring for the animals.  

Vaccine Clinic Volunteer

Assist with our free vaccine clinics in underserved areas of NJ. Each clinic attracts 100 to 250 pet owners and volunteers are needed for great customer service to keep the event organized and efficient. Clinics are held on Saturdays in the spring, summer, and early fall. Must be 18 years of age or older.
