Training Support One of the ways in which Animal Humane Society engages the community to help the animals is by providing training and behavior programming. These programs create well-behaved and manageable pets, which are more likely to stay in their current homes and less likely to end up in the shelter system. Through this work, volunteers working with the training department play a pivotal support role in keeping animals in their homes. No experience required. To apply for this position, click here.
