|In-person interview + 3 hour training required. |
We require volunteers to wear closed-toes shoes and clothes that you can get dirty in, as we will work and be cleaning in and around the animals enclosures. We also ask that any tattoos are covered and facial piercings removed during your shift. For your own convenience, please pull long hair back. We will require an in-person interview prior to starting your service learning hours. We understand that circumstances can change quickly, and if you need to miss a shift, please call us in advance to reschedule. Unexcused absences are not permitted. Please approach this service project with the same attitude and enthusiasm you would offer a “real” job. We are a very family-oriented, friendly facility and ask that our volunteers maintain cheerful demeanors while on site. If you do not like animals, children, or the smell of Simple Green, please do not apply. After successfully completing your service-learning project, our staff would be happy to write you a letter of recommendation.
