VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS

  • All potential volunteers must be at least 18 years of age or older regardless of the volunteer opportunity they are applying for.
  • Anyone under the age of 18 will not be allowed to volunteer at the shelter; for other ways to help, please contact the Volunteer Manager at sdumaine@wpahumane.org.
  • To volunteer handling our animals, you must be willing and able to give a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer service each week.  We also ask that you plan on participating as a volunteer for a minimum of 6 months.  We of course would love for you to stay longer; however, this is the shortest duration we can accept to work with our animals.
