(Note: We do not send confirmation e-mails in regards to orientation registration - only if we must cancel.)

 

All Volunteer Orientation Classes start in our Education Room at the Shelter. Space is limited - You MUST confirm the class of your choosing.

During the orientation, you will travel through the shelter and its grounds.  Please dress appropriately for the weather

All interested parties must take at least the Volunteer Orientation Class before volunteering at the Beaver County Humane Society.  If one wishes to work with animals, additional orientations are necessary.

Please do NOT wear open toed shoes or flip flops during orientation (or any time when volunteering at the shelter).  Sneakers or boots are a must.

During the winter months, if weather conditions cause us to cancel, we will update this webpage.
