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.
