Our next volunteer orientation is on July 2, 2023 (Sunday).
Registration will open on June 18, 2023. Please revisit this page for the registration link or watch out for our social media updates.
IMPORTANT: Due to the large number of applications we receive, we will prioritize applicants who can commit to 8 hours of shelter work per month. Many applicants only attend the orientation but don’t come back to volunteer.
As a show of commitment, we are now asking all applicants for a P1000 deposit which will be returned after rendering at least 8 hours of volunteer work per month for 6 consecutive months. Only applications with a verified deposit will be accepted. Should an applicant fall short of the volunteer requirement, their P1000 deposit will be forfeited and used for medication and treatment of our special-needs shelter animals.
All volunteers must first submit the application form, attend the orientation, and pay the orientation fee of (1) small bag of cat kibble and (1) can of wet cat food, or a cash equivalent of P350.
You can volunteer every day, once a week, once a month, or whenever your schedule allows it. However, to be considered an active, bona fide PAWS volunteer, you must render at least eight (8) hours of volunteer work every month.
You are considered an volunteer if you render at least eight (8) hours of volunteer work per month. Active volunteers get included in special activities, events, and workshops. Volunteers who foster shelter animals are automatically awarded their 8-hours for each month that they foster.
No. However, minors are required to attend the orientation with a parent or guardian. When volunteering, children below 13 must also be supervised by their parent or guardian.
A certain level of knowledge and familiarity with our policies are required in order to perform your volunteer duties. Therefore, all volunteers are required to attend orientation.
As a charity organization, we do not give volunteer certificates to students for academic compliance. Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where one dedicates their time and resources for no financial or social gain.
No. All applications must be submitted within the designated period so that we have time to screen and confirm all attendees before the scheduled orientation date.
Pre-exposure rabies shots are required to do Direct Animal Care (dog walking, bathing, grooming & cuddling)
… Yes, cuddling! This is how we socialize and prep them for their forever families. They need their cuddles, and you need your shots!
