From in-shelter support to at-home foster care, volunteers support every facet of our work at Wood County Humane Society. And one of the most important volunteer positions is membership on our Fundraising Committee. Our annual fundraising initiatives fuel our ability to save animals and every dollar that we are able to earn through such initiatives helps us to pay for the medical care, food, shelter, and more that our animals need to ready them for their forever homes. Fundraising volunteers participate in all aspects of event planning—from brainstorming new events, to sourcing event venues, to soliciting event sponsors, to setting up (and breaking down) an event, and much, much more. Being a volunteer on the Fundraising Committee is an excellent way to get involved and make a difference for the animals of Wood County Humane Society without committing to a set weekly schedule.


Our volunteers also regularly participate in important outreach work for the organization, working to foster a greater presence for Wood County Humane Society within and beyond Wood County. Such outreach work involves showcasing our pets at offsite adoption events, leading tours at the shelter, and representing the organization at community events. Our outreach volunteers are charged with answering questions about the work that we do at Wood County Humane Society, facilitating educational programming, providing the community with information about existing programs and upcoming events, and promoting responsible pet ownership.

T-shirt Fundraiser

We are so excited to announce the winner of our t-shirt contest and the launch of our t-shirt fundraiser! Chris Riddle's winning design will be featured on this year's WCHS t-shirt. Congratulations to Chris!

We have several different styles to choose from whether you need that tank top for summer or are planning ahead for fall and would like a cozy hoodie! There are also children's shirts available. Each product comes in a variety of different colors and features the WCHS logo on the front and Chris's winning design on the back.

When you purchase any of the available products, approximately $5 will go directly to WCHS to support the animals! Orders will ship directly to you when the fundraiser ends in mid-July. Apparel is on sale now and the fundraiser will run through midnight on Wednesday, July 7 th 2021. Thank you for your support!
