At orientation, you will be taken on a tour of the shelter to get an insider's look at the work that goes into animal care at DCHS. You'll learn about our programs and policies so you can start your volunteer work equipped with the information you need to successfully contribute to our mission.
At the end of the orientation, if you decide we are the right fit for you, we will collect a $20 processing/supply fee for each individual who will be volunteering, which includes both adult and youth volunteers. Financial hardship scholarships may be available on a case-by-case basis. You will receive a name badge, an official DCHS volunteer t-shirt and role-specific training packets.
