Training Classes For Current Volunteers

The following classes are open ONLY to volunteers who have already been accepted as volunteers and have gone through the volunteer orientation process, including receiving their photo volunteer badge.

Training beyond orientation is optional, but volunteers of all experience levels are encouraged to attend!

Dog Handling LIVE

For volunteers who have gone through the Volunteer Orientation/Dog Handling 101 but would like some hands-on exposure and training in a group atmosphere, LIVE at the shelter! Hands-on training is provided by friendly MaxFund Volunteer Mentors who want to see you succeed as a volunteer, and who all want more dogs to get walked on a regular basis! Please ask Carolyn Garcia, the Volunteer Coordinator, about new volunteer orientation dates. We do a Dog Handling Live immediately following the classroom portion of each orientation; even if you've already been through the orientation, you're welcome to join the Dog Handling Live portion, space permitting!

Cat Handling LIVE

For volunteers who have gone through the Volunteer Orientation/Cat Handling 101 but would like some hands-on exposure to the cats at the shelter without a formal one-on-one mentoring session! Classes are provided by friendly MaxFund Volunteer Mentors who want to see you succeed and to see the cats get all the socialization, exercise, love and affection they desire! Please ask Carolyn Garcia, the Volunteer Coordinator, about new volunteer orientation dates. We do a Cat Handling Live immediately following the classroom portion of each orientation; even if you've already been through the orientation, you're welcome to join the Cat Handling Live portion, space permitting!
