Volunteer Login


Registered volunteers can login to our new Volunteer Information Center using the button above. You use your email address and password to login.

Each volunteer must have a password before one can sign-in at the computer station. Volunteers must be active and will receive an email from the Development staff. You will be able to change your schedule, receive messages and track your hours!

There is a laptop/tablet at the front counter at the AVHS Animal Shelter and at the Thrift Store & More for volunteers to sign-in when they arrive and to sign-out each day when they leave. The kiosks are easy to use and assist AVHS in being more efficient with tracking your volunteer hours. Your computer kiosk login is your seven digits of your phone number not including your area code. If you need help with your kiosk login, contact the Development Staff.
