Volunteer

In 2017, HSSC volunteers worked a combined total of 29,000 hours! The generous time volunteers dedicate to the Humane Society of Sarasota County enables us 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.

There are many ways to volunteer for HSSC. To get started, choose the volunteer area below that best represents the type of volunteer you want to be.

Ways to Volunteer

Volunteer Spotlight
Axel Traugott

Axel grew up in Berlin and returned to the states to complete his degree in Hotel Management at the University of Massachusetts. He went on to enjoy a 25–year career as V.P. of Sales and Management, opening new Hyatt, Hilton, and Swissotel’s all over the world.
 
He and his wife visited many Florida cities before deciding Sarasota would be the ideal destination to pursue his lifelong interest in pre-Colombian art, as an Antiquities Dealer. HSSC is fortunate that Axel is also quite a dog-lover and he now takes time from his hectic business schedule to walk and matchmaker dogs several times each week. His sales and marketing expertise, combined with his considerable canine knowledge, enable him to be quite effective when suggesting proper pairings between potential adopters and man’s best friend.

Axel is especially fond of the “bully” breeds, so it is no wonder why we appreciate his efforts on our behalf so much.
