Board of Directors Opportunity Open

Do you have a passion for helping Erie’s homeless animals? If so, we have a position for you!

The Erie Humane Society is seeking a volunteer Board Member to serve on our Board of Directors. Volunteer board members make an invaluable contribution to the quality of work and leadership at the Erie Humane Society. The guidance from the Board of Directors helps the Executive Director and organization work to fulfill our mission of Rescuing, Rehabilitating, and Rehoming all pets in need.

Volunteering as a Board Member offers dedicated individuals the chance to collaborate with a group of like-minded individuals who want to help serve as an advocate for homeless pets in need, as well as help further the organization's no-kill mission and vision each year.

At the Erie Humane Society, a diverse, inclusive, and equitable organization, is one where all employees, board members, volunteers and community members feel valued and respected. We are committed to a nondiscriminatory approach and provide equal opportunity for employment and advancement in all our departments, programs, and opportunities available throughout the organization. We respect and value diverse life experiences and heritages and ensure that all voices are valued and heard equally.
