All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older to work with SHS. Children between the ages of 13 and 15 are welcome to volunteer; however, an adult must accompany them at all times. (We love parent and child volunteer teams!) Volunteers who want to work with the animals must be 18 years of age or older or be accompanied by a parent.

Volunteers are asked to pay a $15 fee to offset the cost of volunteer shirts, nametags and training. Volunteers must be able to commit at least 6 hours per month for 6 months.
