Being a volunteer at the WAHS is rewarding, educational and fun! The time you give as a volunteer has a huge impact on the animals we care for.
Volunteer Orientation Training
PRE-REGISTRATION is required to attend a volunteer orientation class at the WAHS. Individuals who do not register to attend will be asked to register for an upcoming class and return on that date.
We welcome volunteers of all ages. Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian during the orientation process. The parent/guardian must also complete the orientation class to become an active volunteer. Volunteers under 18 must also be accompanied by a volunteer parent/guardian while participating in shelter activities. Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to participate in our dog walking program.
Volunteers must complete a basic orientation class before participating in any shelter activity. Orientation provides an overview of shelter policies, guidelines and opportunities.
To register for an upcoming orientation class contact the Program Coordinator: email@example.com or call 724-222-7387 x103.
A volunteer is anyone who offers to do charitable or helpful work without monetary compensation. Volunteers perform activities on behalf of the WAHS at the direction of the Manager of Program Development, Program Coordinator and Shelter Manager. The WAHS does not offer volunteer opportunities to individuals in need of court-ordered community service.
