Who Can Volunteer?

Friendship APL welcomes all volunteers who have a genuine interest in helping the pets and who seek to further our aims and ideas.

Age Requirements

Ages 10-15: A parent or guardian must sign the waiver and accompany, and remain with the volunteer while on duty for both programs and events. Ages 16 to 17: May work most programs and events. A parent or guardian must sign the volunteer waiver and should be available by telephone whenever the volunteer is at the shelter. Ages 18 and up: No limitations.

Required Orientation

To protect yourself, other people and the pets, and to promote good customer service, we provide an orientation before you begin your service as a volunteer. Our orientations are held the second Saturday of every month from 10:00am until 12 noon. Please print and complete the appropriate application and bring it with you to your orientation:
