Volunteer Orientation: What to Expect

After submitting your application, our Volunteer Team will review and reach out with available Volunteer Orientation dates. Volunteer Orientation is an in-person introduction and tour that takes place at ACSKC and is typically an hour long. Please wear closed-toe boots or sneakers and long pants.

If your volunteer area of interest involves animal handling, such as Dog Walking or Cat Socializing, you will also attend a mandatory follow-up training session.
