Volunteer/Community Service 

 

We can only accommodate non-violent offenses. Community Service hours start at 8 AM, 7 Days a Week, please bring any forms you were provided for your Community service. 

 

Please sign in with an employee every morning at 8 AM.  (We can provide a time sheet if one was not provided to you. Please remember, if you don't sign in, you will not receive credit for those hours.)

 Please wear appropriate clothing, no short shorts, no open-toed shoes, tank tops, or large earrings or chunky jewelry. It is best to wear pants and tennis shoes or boots if you are working with dogs in the kennels. It is a good idea to bring an extra shirt if you happen to need it. Please don't' wear your nicest clothes, wear items you will not mind getting a little dirty!

 

We have a water fountain and refrigerator, but we do not have a snack or drink machine. Our suggestion would be to bring a refillable water bottle, and snacks of your own. You can take a lunch break after four hours, you must work a minimum of two hours at a time.

  • Also, if items are brought in (food, cat litter, etc.) stop unfolding paper and assist or bring the items into the building

  • DO NOT DISPENSE ANY CLEANING SUPPLIES. GET WITH AN EMPLOYEE TO GET THOSE SUPPLIES.

  • Wear appropriate clothing. No short shorts, no open-toed shoes, tank tops, or large earrings. Keep your pants pulled up; the public does not want to see what style underwear you are wearing.

  • If you leave the property for meals, your time will be docked while you are gone. If you leave and bring the meal back the time will not be docked if not extended time-wise (10-15 minutes). When you get up from the table, take any food or drinks with you!
