Austin Pets Alive! Group Interest Form
Group Volunteering allows for corporate or organization groups to conduct one-time volunteer projects at APA!
Volunteer groups are typically groups of 10-15 people (or less) that volunteer for 2-hour shifts. Volunteer groups operate on a first come, first served basis, and fill up quickly. Due to staff and volunteer bandwidth, volunteer groups need to be scheduled at least three weeks in advance. Please allow up to one week to hear from an APA! Volunteer Team Member.
Important Things to Know:
-This is only an interest form and does not guarantee a group activity booking.
-Every volunteer must complete and sign the APA! Short Term Volunteer Agreement before they will be allowed to volunteer. All members of the group must be 18 and up.
-APA! asks that each person in the group bring one bag of dog or cat treats as a gesture of goodwill.
-There is a large chance that the activities your group will be assigned are going to get your hands dirty. Please come ready to do so, including comfortable shoes and casual pants. Don't forget your sunscreen!
-APA! asks that groups donate the supplies used in the group activity they are assigned to. For example taking part in ‘Click for Quiet’ involves each person bringing a large bag of Pupperoni.
-Volunteer groups cannot walk or handle dogs in the same capacity as a fully oriented and trained volunteer.
-The Volunteer Team receives requests from APA! Managers on an on-going basis . Group activities vary based on the time of year and needs from different departments.
-Groups interested in long-term, multiple volunteering shifts (more than once per quarter), or groups that want to walk dogs must attend an APA! general orientation.
-APA! asks that groups commit to their scheduled volunteer shift and give a minimum of 48 hours notice if there will be a cancellation.
-All groups that volunteer with APA! must primarily reside in Austin, TX.
