Community Service

We provide the opportunity for individuals with certain minor violations to complete their Community Service at our facility.  There is no guarantee we will be able to accommodate the hours required as part of your community service.  We reserve the right to terminate your community service with the Humane Society of Morgan County, at any time for any reason.

If application for Community Service is approved, you will be contacted to attend an orientation at the rescue shelter.  Our staffing hours are from 8am – 5pm; all shifts must be pre-approved with a supervisor and unless otherwise noted, be no less than 4-hour blocks per shift.  If you are unable to come in for your scheduled shift, you must contact the supervisor as directed.  Those who fail to show up for their shifts will be terminated and all hours accrued will be lost.  A completion letter will only be available to those who actually complete their minimum hour requirement as determined by the court.  If your completion date is less than 30 days from the date of application, we will not approve you for Community Service at our location.

We only accept minor traffic violations.


We do not accept:

  • Major traffic violations
  • Theft/Burglary
  • Harassment
  • Domestic Violence
  • Animal Abuse

If you are in need of community service hours, please submit an application by email to [email protected].  The applications are also available at the shelter as well. Orientations take approximately 30 minutes and are typically scheduled on weekday afternoons. If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian must accompany you to orientation to sign a release form. Please be prepared to bring documents stating the offense, required hours, and probation officer’s contact information along with a valid government ID.
