Additional Guidelines for Younger Volunteers
You must be at least 12 years old to be a junior volunteer and you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
If a Junior Volunteer is 16-18 years old they may volunteer alone. A parent or guardian does need to accompany the first visit to sign off on the Junior Volunteer waiver.
There is a 3-strikes rule! If we have to remind you about following these rules three times, you will not be allowed to return to volunteer without a parent.
HSoP can not accommodate volunteers under the age of 12 at this time.
Junior Volunteers can socialize with animals that are already accustomed to younger people. If an animal is not comfortable or socialized with children, you will not be allowed to interact with them.
