Volunteer Guidelines

1. 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. Please don't' wear your nicest clothes, wear items you would not mind getting a little dirty!


2. 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. 


3. A parent or guardian must be present to sign volunteer paperwork for any child under the age of 18. Children under the age of 16 must have a parent or guardian on the property at all times. Parents or guardians can volunteer or sit in our lobby or be in their car.
