Enjoy an evening of excitement and fun while helping Strafford County's homeless and abused animals! Every Saturday, Seacoast Bingo Hall hosts a Bingo game, the proceeds of which benefit the animals at Cocheco Valley Humane Society. Each year, this game produces approximately 10% of our operating budget, which makes it a very important program.

5 Overall Experience    Experience rating
From walking dogs to office work to planning/staffing special events, the opportunities are priceless.

 I started out walking dogs; the exercise & socializaton helps them til they can find a forever home. When my schedule no longer allowed for that, I began working on special events -- off-site adoptions, rabies clinics, craft fair, walk-a-doggie thon, the list goes on. I've met a lot of great people, and a lot of great animals I never would have otherwise; I've always gone home feeling good about my experiences, and with a renewed appreciation for what CVHS and other organizations like them do, day in and day out. The staff and the other volunteers I've worked with are an extremely dedicated, caring group of people. When I get home I always give a special hug to my own pets. Volunteering for an animal shelter makes me appreciate them even more.
