Pinellas Animal Services Seeks Teen Volunteers
Volunteers will walk dogs, socialize cats and perform other animal-centric activities.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Animal Services is seeking responsible teens to help lead volunteers with dog walking, cat socializing, clerical duties, photography and other animal-centric activities.
Teens must be between the ages of 15 and 17 and must be able to commit to a minimum of one day a week for two hours a day for the school year, from Sept. 3 through May 13.Interested teens must also attend an in-service training in order to volunteer.
The Pinellas County Animal Services Teen Program is designed to prepare teens for future leadership roles, create a sense of motivation and teach invaluable skills that will enable teens to grow into responsible young adults. By working at the shelter, teens will be prepared for the work force, gain hands-on experience and earn community service hours for their Bright Futures scholarship.
Students can download an online application at the Pinellas County Animal Services by clicking here or completing the application at the Pinellas County Animal Services shelter, 12450 Ulmerton Road in Largo. Applications must be received by Saturday (Aug. 27). Space in the program is limited.
