Your interest in volunteering with the Upper Credit Humane Society is very much appreciated. Our volunteers play a vital role in the lives of the animals that pass through our doors and they are very valued recipients of the time and effort that you generously contribute.
Age requirements for volunteers:
All shelter volunteers must be 16 years of age or older, unless otherwise stated. Thrift Shop volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.
As our volunteers are often required to work with both youth and the elderly, a Vulnerable Sector Screening check is required. This is also known as a “criminal record check” or “police check” and can be obtained from your local police (a small fee may be required). This check is for safety and protection purposes, and is a standard requirement for most volunteer organizations.
Students acquiring 40 hours of volunteer work are exempt from this requirement.
