The first step to becoming a VAC volunteer is to attend a volunteer orientation. Once you complete the orientation, you can start volunteering as early as the next day!
At the orientation, we show a video and presentation about our shelter and the various volunteer opportunities available at Valley Animal Center, as well as give our new volunteers time to tour our Cat and Dog Adoption Centers!
**Please note that if you are under age 18, you will need a parent or guardian with you at the orientation and when you come in to volunteer.**
If you are planning to attend the orientation, we recommend you arrive early to get a good seat, as we have a limited number of chairs and our orientations tend to fill up quickly as we only offer them once a month. No sign-ups prior to the orientation are required. Latecomers will not be able to participate.
