Volunteer Program


Volunteerism is an integral part of the Humane Society for Greater Savannah and enables us to make a difference in the lives of thousands of homeless pets. We could not exist without the time, effort, enthusiasm and expertise that each volunteer commits to giving. We recognize the valuable roles volunteers play and are committed to providing thorough, hands-on training and ongoing support to every volunteer.

We ask that each volunteer commits to six hours a month and is able work with us for at least six months. If you know in advance that it will be difficult to fulfill this commitment, please consider helping us in other ways - by donating to our wish list, our thrift store or becoming a foster parent. If you are interested in periodic volunteering, we always need volunteers for special events.

Operation New Hope


Operation New Hope is a partnership between the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and the Humane Society for Greater Savannah. The goal of Operation New Hope is to give dogs with poor prospects for adoption a second chance, and to reduce recidivism rates by giving inmates the opportunity to acquire new transferable skills and experience accountability.
