Volunteers are very important people at Colorado Reptile Humane Society. As a private, non-profit organization, we rely on the assistance of caring and hardworking volunteers in all of our programs. To volunteer, you must be at least eighteen years old and willing to make a six-month commitment of approximately three hours per week. We require a $15.00 contribution at orientation for a volunteer T-shirt and to help defray the cost of the volunteer program, leaving more resources for the shelter reptiles.
In a year's time, CoRHS receives nearly 300 unwanted and abused reptiles, and helps hundreds of people and animals throughout Colorado and beyond. Our main shelter is located in Longmont, north of Boulder.
To get started, potential CoRHS volunteers should complete and submit our on-line application. We will contact you for a volunteer interview and get you started helping homeless reptiles!
- Develop new skills while exploring the field of animal care
- Meet new people with similar interests

Most importantly, volunteering will make life brighter for the reptiles in our care, and better for the people and animals in our community.
