The volunteers play a vital role at Bryan Health. They work in more than 100 areas throughout the system. Duties vary and may include answering phones, making pillows, and offering freshly baked cookies to guests.


Established in 1902, the Capital Humane Society originally focused on the prevention of cruelty to children and horses. Today, it serves the community by sheltering unwanted pets until they find loving homes. The society also acts as an advocate for animal welfare and educates the public about responsible dog and cat care.

The volunteers are dedicated to helping the animals at least once a week. After an orientation, duties may include cleaning cages, assisting at special events, and helping with animal enrichment activities.
