Volunteer with us this Summer!
The “Summer Break 2017” program is for volunteers aged 16-21 to volunteer at our Oakland Adoption Center over the summer months of June, July and August. The end date is flexible based on your school schedule.
Volunteers allow us to provide great care and varied enrichment to our shelter animals throughout the year. Without the time, effort and expertise of each volunteer, we would not be able to run our shelters! As a Summer Break volunteer, we ask that you be able to commit to at least two 8-10 am Animal Care volunteer shifts per week through the summer. These shifts will be assigned to you based on your availability and interests, as well as our needs.
- If you are accepted, you will be required to attend a mandatory Summer Break Volunteer Orientation on Sunday, June 4 from 1-4 pm.
- The Orientation will be held at our Oakland Adoption Center. If you are not available to attend, you will not be able to volunteer.
- Volunteers aged 16-17 are welcome to volunteer independently, but must have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian at the Orientation.
Spaces for the summer are limited and we encourage you to respond ASAP. If you would like to apply to be part of this program, please submit an application by May 13th.
