The first step to becoming a volunteer is to sign up and attend a group orientation. These orientations take place at the Animal Welfare League every second and fourth Saturday of the month starting at 10:00 am and last about 60 minutes for the first session and an additional 60 minutes for the dog walker training that follows at 11:00 am. If you do not wish to be involved with dog walking, you may leave after the first session.
At the orientation, you’ll meet our Volunteer Program Manager and some of our current experienced volunteers. You will get a brief overview of our history, services, current life-saving goals and how the volunteer program helps us achieve our mission. We will also explain the various positions available where we may be able to utilize your skills and talents.
16 & Under – Must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
