We offer opportunities for volunteers 16 and above. If you are a young person (under 18 years old) and would like to volunteer, please note that we will need a permission form signed by your parent. We do have other programs that young people 16 or below can be involved in such as raising funds, doing a supply drive or helping to promote an animal for adoption through their social groups. We do not have a community service program available.
All new volunteers must attend our orientation and training classes prior to starting your tenure here at Foothills. Fill out the New Volunteer Application here.
