Volunteer

The Humane Society of Sarasota County's volunteers generously give their time and talents, which enables HSSC to continue to save lives and expand our services for our community. With so many resources required to provide care for our animals, it would be impossible to fulfill our mission as the area’s premier no-kill shelter without our volunteers.

Ways to Volunteer

Volunteer Spotlight
Bryan Gastman

It is always a supreme pleasure to welcome a military veteran to our campus. Bryan Gastman was a Sergeant in the United States Army and has a degree in Information Services and Cyber Security.
 
When Bryan was a senior in high school, he and his family received the difficult news that his father was battling pancreatic cancer. Since his dad had always dreamed of retiring to Venice, Florida, they shifted their plans into high gear in order to be near grandparents who had already relocated to Venice. The bittersweet move enabled Bryan’s family to have cherished time together, for which he will always be grateful.
 
Not surprisingly, a very special dog plays a huge role in Bryan’s life. He found Sarge at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay and has trained him as a service dog capable of helping with numerous tasks and easing the effects of PTSD and other panic and anxiety disorders. Sarge is mostly yellow lab with a dab of greyhound, and he is now six years old. Bryan says, “I got my best friend Sarge from a Humane Society, and I just wanted to use my free time in a productive way to help an organization I believe in.”
