weekday and one weekend day per month.
At least 18 years old.
Able to squat, bend, twist, lift, or stand for long periods
when working directly with the animals.
Possess good communication skills, as all volunteer
positions involve working as a part of a team with other volunteers.
Complete a volunteer application, attend an orientation,
and go through training.

Must be able to take and seek direction and have
a self-motivated work ethic.

shifts, and will give advanced notice if they will be unable to come in
at their scheduled time.
