Sign Up for Training

All volunteers, returning and new, are required to complete 10 hours of animal care chores before training (or retraining) to work directly with our pets. (Please note that no training is required to volunteer at our thrift store).

This is our area of greatest need so we’re looking for humans who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty to help care for our pets. The Adoption Center Basics (ACB) training is a one-hour training where you will learn the ins and out of our facility, the chores and tasks that need to be completed daily, and fun enrichment activities that improve our pets’ daily lives.

All volunteers who complete their ACB training and 10 hours of animal care chores will then be eligible to train to work directly with the dogs and/or the cats! Upon completion of animal socialization training, you can partake in more volunteer opportunities like adoption events, day trips, sleepovers, cat café, PetSmart and study with a buddy.

Minors must be at least 8 years old to interact with the cats, 12 to interact with the dogs, and 13 to help at our Thrift Store. Minors under the age of 16 must always volunteer with a parent or guardian present. Minors aged 16+ can volunteer without a parent/guardian present with prior written approval from their parent/guardian.
