Five Acres Animal Shelter (formerly St Charles Humane Society) Volunteer Application & Agreement
of survey complete.
PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH THE APPLICATION. INCOMPLETE APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE REVIEWED.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Five Acres Animal Shelter.
*Due to overwhelming interest in Five Acres Volunteer Program, orientations typically book far in advance. It may be several weeks before you are invited to an orientation.
Please be patient - we need your help, but we can only accommodate so many people at a time, and we want your experience to be positive!
We are the only no-kill shelter in St. Charles County, finding homes for hundreds of dogs and cats every year. We are a small 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, not affiliated with any other shelter, humane society, or government entity. We do not receive any tax funding - therefore, we rely on the generous support of our donors and volunteers!
This application is not to be used for court-ordered community service - please contact the Director of Volunteer Activities at 636-949-9918 ext. 13 for more information about community service.
This completed application must be received before volunteers will be signed up for orientation - the Director of Volunteer Activities will call or email you to confirm.
All volunteers must attend orientation, and a $10 tax-deductible orientation fee must be paid that day.
Volunteers must be 16 years old to volunteer independently. Youth ages 13-15 years old may volunteer with the supervision of an adult (family member or family friend at least 18 years old), and both will need to complete the application process and attend orientation.
Your application will be reviewed, and you will be contacted regarding the upcoming available orientations which may be held up to twice per month. There is a limit of 15 prospective volunteers at orientation. Prospective volunteers must be signed up in advance - no walk-ins are allowed.
If you have any questions, please call the Director of Volunteer Activities at 636-949-9918 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
