a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
― Anatole France
You must be at least 16 years of age (our shelter insurance does not cover anyone under 16)
Be able to commit at least 1 day a week (or more if you are able)
Be able to volunteer on a scheduled basis (this way we are never short of volunteer coverage for tours, dog walking or fundraisers)
You may be required to pay a $15 application fee and fill out the ‘Authorization for Volunteer Background Check.’ (attached to the volunteer app) This can be paid in cash.
Only AFTER you have completed the orientation will you be able to come to volunteer at the JSAC. Please be aware that seating in our conference room is limited, therefore we will only be able to accommodate 10 registrants during any orientation session.
New volunteer orientations will be on a case by case basis.
You MUST contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 732-920-1600 x 0 to confirm your attendance at the general orientation.
If you are registered, please do not bring friends or family members. Our conference room has limited table seating and your guest will be asked to leave.
Please do not be offended if the JSAC cannot use your services at the moment. We have many volunteers with us already and many more apply every day. When an opening becomes available we will contact you.
Those persons interested in dog walking must attend an additional Dog Walking Orientation in addition to the General Orientation.
