All junior volunteers must have a parent or guardian’s consent to volunteer and have reliable transportation. Junior Volunteers will be responsible for the care of our animals. Their tasks include cleaning kennels, preparing food, refreshing water, and giving one-on-one attention to our animals.
Potential Junior Applicants can download a Junior Volunteer Application or pick up an application at SICSA from January 1st 2013 to March 25th, 2013. If you are a returning Junior Volunteer from previous years fill out the Junior Volunteer Application Returnee so that we can better structure the kennel shifts around both the returning and new junior volunteers.
All applications for the 2013 Junior Volunteers, must be received or post marked by March 25th, 2013 in order to be considered for the 2013 Junior Program. A maximum of 38 new dog volunteers and 24 new cat volunteers will be accepted this year.
Only applicants between 13 (as of June 1, 2013) and 17 years old with completed applications submitted on or prior to March 25th, 2013 will be considered. Katie Tilly, Volunteer Coordinator, will be contacting the new junior volunteers in the middle of April to let them know about orientation sessions in the month of May. All new Junior Volunteers will need to have completed their orientation and their kennel training by the first week of June.
Special note: Due to the large number applicants, there will be some who will not be accepted into the program. They will be notified by the middle of April.
