Volunteer Orientation

Last date was Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm (CT)


Orientations are held at the Animal Care Services Annex Building (Highway 151). ALL volunteers are required to attend a volunteer orientation after the completion of your membership application and the submission of a background check form required by city of San Antonio, which is located under the documents tab  or will be available onsite the day of ORIENTATION. Our session is typically a one and a half to a  two hour long session as we will discuss SAPA! mission, San Antonio's NO Kill city history and many of the available volunteer opportunities.  We look forward to meeting you!

Please tell me how to sign my son up for orientation so that he can begin volunteering. I cannot find anything on your website. Thank you!

I just noticed that there are no Geneneral Orientations for the month of June or July. I really want to go through orientation so I can start making an impact with your organization.
