Mandated Service

We are not currently accpeting applications for court-mandate community service at our Portland Campus.

To volunteer at our Salem Campus, please contact our Animal Welfare Supervisor at 503-585-5900, extension 323.

A person wanting to volunteer at Oregon Humane Society to fulfill court-mandated community service can do so through his/her probation officer. OHS receives referrals directly from the county office or from individuals. If you are not referred directly from the county, you will need to provide, in writing:

  • Court documentation of offense
  • Number of hours to be completed
  • Deadline for completion
  • Court contact information if possible

All court-mandated community service volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, bring photo identification and complete an OHS application (contact info below).

Court-mandated community service volunteers have no contact with shelter animals or the public. Volunteer time may be spent performing the following duties:

  • Washing pet dishes
  • Washing/disinfecting animal crates
  • Cleaning/disinfecting animal kennels

Please be aware that the Oregon Humane Society does not accept those convicted of the following crimes (all other charges will be assessed on a case-by-case basis):

  • Animal neglect/abuse
  • Violent crimes
  • Weapons charges
  • Crimes of a sexual nature
  • Certain drug charges
