The Junior Volunteer Club introduces young people to the benefits of volunteering in an animal shelter.
Junior volunteers must be between ages 12 and 15, dependable and responsible, have good communication skills, be willing to take on a variety of tasks and have an enthusiasm for working with people and animals. Please note that junior volunteers will be working with cats, dogs and small mammals at our shelters, and that we are unable to make accommodations for children who are allergic to these species.
Volunteers will work alongside adult volunteers for two hours each month, cleaning animal enclosures, socializing and working with dogs, cats and small mammals, and learning about animal welfare issues. They will meet one Saturday each month from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
There is a $100 fee to join, which is due at the time of registration. The fee covers a six-month membership in the club.
