As part of our volunteer application process, there is a $30 fee for adults (18+), $20 for minors, to help cover the costs of your volunteer t-shirt, nametag, handouts, background check (if 18 or older), and our online volunteer information center. It is not tax-deductible. We hope it is a small price to pay for the good feeling of knowing that you are helping the animals and people in our community. If the fee is cost-prohibitive, or you want to pay wit hcash or check, please contact the Volunteer Manager to make alternative arrangements.
Starting May 1st, 2017, we will ask foster volunteers to pay a $30 volunteer fee as well. It will also include a special foster volunteer t-shirt, the background check, handouts, and our online volunteer information center.
