About the Junior Volunteer Program

The application period for the 2014 Junior Volunteer Program is closed.


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 until March 28, 2014.  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.

A maximum of 38 new dog volunteers and 24 new cat volunteers will be accepted this year.

Only applicants between 13  and 17 years old with completed applications submitted on or prior to the deadline will be considered. All new Junior Volunteers will need complete their orientation and their kennel training by the first week of June. 

Special note:  Due to the large number of applicants, there will be some who will not be accepted into the program.
