Becoming a Volunteer:
Download, print and fill out the volunteer application or come to our office during open hours and fill one out. Once you have applied, we will either set you up with a training time at the time you turn in your application or we will contact you when the next training session is scheduled. Once training has been completed, you are set to volunteer.
Cat Care: Training starts with a cat care orientation (roughly 30 minutes in length), you then train with another volunteer or staff member for two separate shifts, and your first shift alone will be done while there are other volunteers and/or staff members handy if you should have any questions.
Dog Walking: Your training is an hour-long dog walking orientation. During this orientation, you will be told how to approach the dogs, where they can be walked, how long you need to spend – at a minimum – with each dog, and the other various rules that go along with being a dog walker.
Office: Training consists of two, two hour shifts in the office during open hours. There are a lot of things to remember as an office volunteer, but it is an important position in helping us find homes for our animals or reuniting animals with their owners.
