We are encouraging all HHS volunteers to register for the online Fear Free Shelter Program.
This FREE program was designed to help shelter staff and volunteers like you better understand our animal's emotional needs and empower you to apply key strategies and techniques designed to reduce the negative emotional states that are commonly experienced by shelter and rescue animals—including fear, anxiety, stress (FAS), and frustration—and increase their enrichment opportunities.
All volunteers are encouraged to enroll in this program, simply keep track of the hours spent working on each module and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sweet Sampson recently returned to the shelter after spending some time in an HHS foster volunteer's home. Learn more about this loveable pup in his spotlight piece. Help us find a furever home for him!
Click on the link below to learn more about Nicole Carrillo! She is a William and Mary student that started volunteering with us in 2018. She has given back so much to our shelter in the time she has been with us and helped many dogs get adopted thanks to her help at offsite events.
Williamsburg Jewelers has HUNDREDS of jewelry items available in their store for only $2 each! What's even better is that they have kindly agreed to donate every single penny raised to community charities and Heritage Humane Society is one of them! Williamsburg Jewelers is requiring all sales to be cash-only so that they can divide the money evenly between the charitable organizations. No tax will be collected.
Our HHS Facebook Group page is a great way to stay up-to-date on the happenings at our shelter! We post updates, volunteer needs, cute photos and videos, and MORE on this page. It is a private group that only our HHS volunteers are invited to.
