What if I have a large group that wants to volunteer?

We welcome large groups and do our best to accommodate you when we have appropriate volunteer work to be completed. As the coordination of large groups often takes up a lot of staff time, we may need to postpone your volunteer day to a date and time that coincides with our specific needs.

What is the time commitment for volunteers?

It depends on the volunteer role. Some volunteer positions require a consistent, weekly commitment, while others allow for more flexibility. In general, volunteers should plan on volunteering 4-8 hours per month at a minimum to maximize your impact. If you are absent for more than 2 months, you may be considered inactive and we may require you to repeat training upon return, depending on what type of volunteer activities you are participating in.

Does Clermont Animal CARE offer training to volunteers?

Yes. It is important for the safety of our staff, volunteers and animals that all volunteers are trained in the activities they are volunteering in.
In addition to orientation, volunteers working with cats and dogs will need to attend training sessions that go over animal handling, cage/kennel rules, and animal safety.
